General practitioners (GPs) in the Netherlands frequently assess skin tumours such as moles. However, the training of medical students, GP trainees and postgraduate training of GPs in evaluating these skin lesions is limited. Furthermore, literature is scarce and no guidelines are available. It is still unclear when histopathological evaluation of an excised skin lesion should be performed. Additional research in primary care populations and the development of a guideline would promote a more unambiguous approach. More (postgraduate) education is needed on this topic. Dermatoscopy and teledermatology might also play a role in improving care.
