Abstract

Aim. To outline the initial general practice care of pigmented naevi presented for assessment of malignancy. Method. Fifty six general practitioners completed a brief record for each patient presenting a pigmented skin lesion for assessment of malignancy; records were maintainedprospectively for periods over October 1988 to April 1989. 2614 records were received. Results. Numbers of consultations increased sharply with age to peaks at 15-19 for men and 30-44 for women; at ages 20 44 the sex ratio was 1.9 (F/M). Lesions were usually typical (51%) or atypical (24%) moles. 22% of patients were biopsied by the practitioner and 8% were referred, to dermatologists (4%) or surgeons (4%). Conclusions. The age pattern of presentations is younger than is optimal. General practitioners' decisions and actions are of crucial importance in the effective functioning of melanoma early detection programmes.
