I'm not saying that a doctor would ever freeze melanoma. I'm saying that doctors should freeze any "pre cancerous" spots on skin that are not cancer (yet), but if ignored and left unattended, could over years develop into cancer. This includes all forms of skin cancer. It is best to "nip it in the bud" years before the spot actually turns into melanoma which is then too late since it has already metastasized and potentially spreading to other organs.
