Incidence of multiple primary melanoma is associated with a limited but substantial incidence of a family history of melanoma, dysplastic nevi (DN), or basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and a small association with CDKN2A mutations. The family members of multiple primary melanoma patients can benefit from screening and regular surveillance for melanoma, DN, and BCC.
