In brief: Depends on test
A general physical examination may the only thing needed, if no suspicious lesions are noted and the cost would be of a visit.
If a suspicious lesion is noted and needs biopsy then the costs include the cost of surgical procedure and diagnostic work up by pathology.

In brief: Don't worry
Melanoma is so serious that any reasonable doctor will find a way for the testing costs to be paid for, if the patient is really unable to pay.
Ask to talk with a social worker. A biopsy generally costs about $200 which includes the surgeon fee as well as the pathologist fee (who actually examines it under a microscope).
