In brief: Many factors

The cost depends on whether or not a biopsy is done, and the extent of the non-biopsy part of the examination, modified by the coding, complexity, insurance carrier, and metropolitan location.

In brief: Varies

Your primary care doctor can do it as part of an office visit and it will probably be less expensive than a visit to a dermatologist.
On the other hand, dermatologists have specialized training and extensive experience. Although many melanomas are easy to identify, there are some very subtle clues in atypical melanomas that occur in a small number of patients.
