I posted recently about a very light innocent freckle on my toe that came back moderately atypical.
It was a few years "new".. but so innocent. In the meantime, my sister just had a spot removed from her face. It was UNchanged for at least 10+ years, on her face for 20. Her new derm looked at it with a dermatoscope and it had an unusual pattern so she recommended removal. It was severely atypical -- more or less mm in-situ.
Both of us have hundreds of moles, had had mm in in-situ, have body photography done, and I've probably had 50+ moles removed.
I am now on edge because hers didn't change at all- so how can we know what needs to come off and what is brewing on our skin? I have so many now i want off w/ our history, my moley skin, with my toe "surprise" one and now her face.
My derm i love, but does not use a dermatoscope that I know of (or not very often)
I know how lucky we are to catch it early, but just wondering how to proceed if now change or being new might not even be a sign!!
Thanks and best wishes to all : )
