Can nodular melanoma be caught early with monthly skin exams? Or does it grow too quick? Seems many doctors misdiagnose it which causes problems.

Difficult . The reason why this type of melanoma is caught late because it spreads to the inside rather than spreading to the outside like other types of melanoma. Therefore, it is difficult to notice a change in the mile. Also, in melanoma, the deeper the lesion, the worse it is and the more likely to spread to other parts. This makes nodular melanoma more serious and aggressive as it grows deep.
