Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer because it can spread from the skin to other parts of the body. In 2023, an estimated 97,610 adults (58,120 and 39,490 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with melanoma. The American Association of Dermatology states that “while fewer people get melanoma than the more common types of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the skin, developing melanoma can be more serious.”

The good news is that although melanoma is an aggressive cancer, when found early before it grows deep or spreads, it’s highly treatable. Treating melanoma early can prevent complex and difficult treatment that would be necessary if the cancer grows deep or spreads. Here at The Art of Skin Dermatology, we are able to excise most melanoma’s in the comfort of our own office!

Dysplastic Nevi

Dysplastic nevi, also known as atypical moles, are a unique type of mole that falls between common moles and melanoma on the spectrum of skin conditions. While they are benign, they exhibit characteristics similar to malignant melanomas. Although most atypical moles do not pose a health risk, it is crucial to undergo proper screening and early diagnosis to detect and treat skin cancer effectively. For all your mole-related concerns and Gainesville dermatology needs, contact The Art of Skin Dermatology


Moles are spots on your skin that may be flesh-colored, pink, tank, brown, black or other colors. Moles are common. In fact, almost every adult has a few of them. Adults with light skin may have as many as 40 moles on their skin, which is normal.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, “most moles appear on the skin during childhood and adolescence. Moles will grow as the child or teen grows. Some will darken and others will lighten. These changes are expected and seldom a sign of melanoma.” However, for adults, new moles and changes to existing moles can be a sign of melanoma. Caught early, melanoma is highly treatable.
