Went to the dermatoligist yesterday and had two (2) moles removed and about forty (40) skin tags taken off. One of the moles that he removed was one that I was concerned about because it had changed over the last few months.
When the DR looked at the mole that had been changing, he really didn't say a whole lot, other than he would take some off for biopsy and then burn the rest off with the laser. So now I don't know if I had built myself up to where I really thought it was a mole with melanoma or if he just doesn't get "excited" about things like that. So now I'm not sure what to think.
I am scheduled to go back next month to have a few more moles taken off and about another fifty (50) skin tags.
So for now, I guess I will wait for the pathology report to come back and I'll post when I find out. I guess the only "good" thing is that I've had suspicious (sp?) moles taken off before and they always came back benign. Although both my dad and my aunt (from mom's side) have had melanoma moles, neither one of them had a relapse. But I have melanoma on both sides of the family tree.
Let you know something when I find out.
