Moderate Atypia. Is It Melanoma?
I am almost 22 and have been tanning in beds since I was in a preteen. (I won't be anymore) I got the results back from a biopsy and the mole was "moderate atypia." I have to go back in a couple weeks so my Dr can remove the skin around where they cut out my mole on my stomach. They said I would get stitches from this. Does this term "moderate atypia" mean I have cancer? What does it mean? Will I have a big scar from this next procedure where they remove more skin around it? Should I be worried?
Moderate atypia is not cancer, nor is it "benign"
You are doing the right thing
A moderately atypical mole is not melanoma, but should be removed.
