My newly diagnosed melanoma (3a) is giving me a bigger headache! Took my son to dermatologist for his "body check" because of his momma's diagnosis. Doctor took two not so cute moles off, told me dont worry they are really nothing to worry about and to call in a week.
Dr. office calls last night and tells me that they are compound melanocytic nevus' and that he needs to be watched more carefully now. Also that the only thing we need to do is watch the area and to make sure that no pigment grows back. Does that sound correct to all of you warriors out there? I am sick to my stomach about it however, thanking God that I am taking my kids for this yearly check up and catching whatever may be a problem.
I have a path report and can give more info if needed. It does also say that the 'architectural growth pattern is compatible with dysplastic melanocytic nevus. there is mild cytologic atypia of melanocytes'
