Mole Was Removed Via Shave Biopsy; However, Should an Excisional Have Been Performed? (photo)
On Tuesday, I had a mole (see below) removed via shave biopsy. My dermatologist identified it as suspicious for the color. I am expecting results within the next 10-14 days. After doing more resesarch on my end, the mole appears to be more than just "suspicious." Should an excisional biopsy have been performed? If so, how do I have this difficult conversation with my dermatologist? Thank you in advance!
