A basic rule in melanoma is if you are to ever get a second primary, it will be the same type as the first primary. So if your first melanoma was on the skin, then if you were to get another one it would also be on the skin and have similar features. I am sure there are exceptions to the rule, but generally this is how it goes. As with anything, if there is something suspicious,  get it thoroughly checked out.
