Wait for the biopsy to confirm the diagnosis. Melanoma, if it is caught before it metastasizes to other parts of the body, can in most cases be treated with a simple outpatient surgery. If it does turn out to be skin cancer, your friend should use this as an opportunity to evaluate what they did to get the skin cancer. Usually it is a result of abusing your skin by excessive suntanning and not wearing sunscreen.
