Then do a check to see if the data already exists before the INSERT

Isn't using primary key is a solution for this? Though I am not expert of programming but using primary key can avoid duplication in the same field.

Well this one would be kind of hard to answer without knowing the db table structure and what is being entered. However, you do need to have the form check to see if the db already contains the update from the user.
if you provided your code and db structure we would be able to help come up with a good solution for you.
