Ok, Janner,

I stayed away until I had a nurse call me again. They had no idea I already received my path report and was attempting to explain it to me again before I spoke. She told me I have to get an excision because the mole was abnormal and they needed to find out what it is?? Does that make any sense? I challenged her by asking that a diagnosis was already written on the report and that doesn't make sense...blah..blah..


I'm sorry that I am bothering you again but it this is making my anxiety spin out of control. Thanks. :)

Nurses are not ones to explain pathology reports.  If you want more information, you will have to talk to the doctor.  I've seen plenty of nurses totally screw up medical pathology stuff.  Nothing against nurses, but they aren't the ones to interpret data for you.  As far as I'm concerned, nothing has changed.  They want it totally removed.  They do that with many atypical lesions that are not cancer - just to err on the side of caution.  Just proceed as planned and have it removed.  This hasn't magically changed to cancer just because of what the nurse said.
