It's often difficult to differentiate early melanomas from benign melanocytic nevi even by expert dermatologists, and the task is even more challenging for primary care physicians untrained in dermatology and dermoscopy.

There is no contentment. While others are busy being content, the rest of us are happily working to pass them by.
