PD Asks: If you were out in public and saw an individual with a suspicious skin lesion, would you address it?

“I think it depends. If I thought the spot was potentially life threatening to that person, I think it’s worth talking to that person and mentioning it. Whether they like it or not, I think it’s worth trying. If it’s something that I don’t think is potentially life threatening, I probably wouldn’t mention it to that person who I think might take offense at me trying to tell them something or help them.”
