Is a Punch Biopsy Enough for Atypical Moles?
I had a few shave biopsies done 2 weeks ago. Two came back with mild atypia. The PA said they would do a punch biopsy to get the rest out. I asked if I could do an excision and she said its not really necessary. That the punch biopsy would get a wider and deeper sample and the margins would be tested. Is this enough of a precautionary measure to prevent this atypical mole from coming back/turning into melanoma? Btw I'm Asian, dark hair, have about 25 moles on body, no family history. Thank you.
