Back in December I had a funky looking growth on my hand. I was concerned it was a non pigmented melanoma. Had a shave biopsy and it came back as a wart. Great, right? Well I scheduled a full body skin check with the dermatologist and had that in February. I have a fairly large amount of moles. I hadn't had a full skin check in probably 10 years (I'm 35 now).
This derm had never seen my moles before and pointed out quite a few that she wants to biopsy. Like, almost 10. Now I have had all these moles for at least 5-10 years and I have noticed no change in them. Should I proceed to have all of these biopsied? What are the odds of these being melanoma if they've been around for at least 5 years. I'd normally like to proactive but it's so many biopsies!! Any advice??
