Darkness in the Biopsy Site of a Mole: What Could it Mean?
Biopsy of a Mole
When a mole is removed it is sent to a dermatopathologist for analysis. That is the only way to determine if a mole is malignant. Having pigment remain after a shave removal is quite common and not a sign of cancer. Please find a board certified dermatologist for the best results.
