Diagnosis: Dysplastic Melanocytic Nevus, Compound Type
Comment: A lateral edge is positive for neoplasm. Deep edges appear free of neoplasm. Re-excision is suggested in order to perform additional analysis and to ensure that this proliferation has been removed from the patient.
Microscopic Description: A compound type melanocytic nevus is present demonstrating architerctural disorder as well as some cytologic atypia. Immunostain MART-1 stains melanocytes at the dermo-epidermal junction as well as in the dermis.
Tomorrow I go for the re-excision. He also said that he may take other moles off. This is my 2nd excision after another atypical mole, although the first one was worse and he said the excision for this one will be smaller. I'm tired of being cut on and need a break after this. Can I tell my doctor that? Any thoughts on my path report?
