Melanoma is a good point, and an epidermotropic metastasis must be considered.

The clinical diagnosis was AK vs BCC vs SK

Here is my diagnosis:

[b]-- MELANOMA (pT4b) *[/b]
[indent=1]- Breslow measurement at least 5.45 mm[/indent]
[indent=1]- Clark Level at least IV[/indent]
[indent=1]- Ulcerated[/indent]

I also saw the definitive excision, and almost none of this lesion remained. As far as I know, this is a primary neoplasm.
