My grandpa had melanoma taken out three times, and my uncle has had it once.  They both do continuous check-ups.  If they hadn’t, my grandpa’s melanoma wouldn’t have been caught the second and third times.

I’ve never had melanoma but I have had a few suspicious moles removed.  I go see my derm every 6 months for a complete check.  She looks from under/between my toes all the way up to my scalp and in my hair (and everywhere) in between.  She also takes pictures and measurements of some of my more funny looking moles to track.  

I’d say better safe than sorry.  Melanoma is a scary cancer but it preventable/treatable if the right precautions are taken.
