If you have a mole that needs to be checked out you should probably see a dermatologist. An Emory University study looked at the records of over 2,000 melanoma patients and found that those who had been diagnosed by a dermatologist were more likely to have early-stage-cancer and survive than did the patients who had been diagnosed by another type of doctor. Yes, primary care doctors are great but if in doubt about a skin situation you should see a specialist. Skin is a dermatologist's specialty and they are much better prepared to catch an early skin or mole cancer.
