Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer, impacting melanocytes in the skin and often resulting from cancerous moles. While less common than squamous cell and basal cell carcinomas (SCC and BCC), melanoma is more likely to spread to other areas of the body, making it much more deadly. Like all types of skin cancer, early detection and treatment is the best solution for melanoma. At LM Medical NYC, we offer cancerous moles treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.

Melanoma Warning Signs

Since melanoma is the deadliest and fastest-growing skin cancer, quick detection is vital for effective treatment. While melanoma is often linked to cancerous moles, only 20-30% of melanoma cases are actually from existing moles. The other melanoma lesions can form on normal skin. Checking your skin for early warning signs is crucial – patients who detect melanoma early and receive treatment (removal of the cancerous mole or growth) have a 99% five-year survival rate. Some of the warning signs include the ABCDEs of melanoma:

  • A is for Asymmetry: One half of the spot is unlike the other half.
  • B is for Border: The spot has an irregular, scalloped or poorly defined border.
  • C is for Color: The spot has varying colors from one area to the next, such as shades of tan, brown or black, or areas of white, red or blue.
  • D is for Diameter: Melanomas are usually greater than 6 millimeters — or about the size of a pencil eraser — when diagnosed, though they can be smaller.
  • E is for Evolving: The spot looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color.

Even if you do not have any other symptoms, see a board certified dermatologist if you notice one of these signs or notice an existing mole start to evolve or change in any way.

These rules can be applied toward any abnormal spot on the skin or changes in an existing mole. If you are concerned about a skin growth, you should schedule an appointment immediately with renowned skin expert Dr. Morgan Rabach, our board certified dermatologist.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
