Nervous about Melanoma
« on: June 08, 2014, 09:57:15 PM »
Hey all, I'm so anxious.  :(  I am getting a punch biopsy tomorrow for an irregular mole on my back.  The dermatologist said that it was probably just an irritated mole (it is raised and it is near my bra strap) but that it should be checked.  I'm going to be freaking out until I get the results.  :(

But, on the positive side, I had to get a complete blood count with differential and everything was normal.  (Unrelated to the skin issue, but I am always terrified of blood counts, haha)

Good luck!  It'll probably be fine.  I hope the biopsy site isn't too annoying being in that location!
