A patient’s perspective on melanoma – and the treatment of patients

File:Melanoma border.jpg

This isn’t just about melanoma – it’s about how many doctors approach patients in general. Some doctors trust what they say, others assume what they know themselves is right – and some find the right balance, about taking the complete history and interpreting it based on your clinical knowledge, experience, and investigations. And because of that, you can change someone’s life.

This BMJ article talks about a patient with chronic arthritis being diagnosed with melanoma, and how different teams approach her management. A great read with a nice doctor’s perspective at the end.
