FAMMM: Your condition is also called familial atypical multiple mole- melanoma. Screening for melanoma in fammm kindreds should begin at age 10 with a baseline total body skin examination including scalp, eyes, oral mucosa, genital area, and nail, as family members may develop melanoma in their early teens.
