I received Michelle's pathology report and the lesion that was removed last week was benign. The report states it was a Junctional Melanocytic Nevus with nests of typical melanocytes.
So glad to hear this great news!

That's wonderful news. Great to read a good news post like this.

I'm me, not a statistic. Praying to not be one for years yet.
