What are the signs of getting a high melanoma?

I m 63 old male. my brother dyed from melanoma at 62. I have had 4 skin biopsies already, 2 were BCC (back), one warty dyskeratoma (back), and one verrucous keratosis (scrotum). All these findings were in less than a year. Are they indicative of a higher melanoma risk?

Hi,

Malignant melanoma is a malignancy occurs on melanocytic nevi. Color changes, change in size, change in surface of nevus, erosions in nevi etc may indicate transformation of benign condition to malignant condition. The lesions you suffered are unrelated to malignant melanoma.

Hope this helps.
