I am waiting on the results of a skin biopsy today. I noticed a new mole about a month and a half ago and decided that it did not look right and went to see my Dr. today and upon looking at it he seemed concerned that it definately looked suspicious given that I have never had any moles and it had like 5 of the 6 warning signs for melanoma and he informed me that it had to be removed right away so off we went to suture room (or whatever they call it lol) and he numbed me and removed my mole. I should know in about a week what the results are but please say a prayer if you have any in you that it is normal. I am only 25 I have 3 young kids and I have not done any excessive sunbathing so I am really hoping that this is just a scary false alarm.

My prayers are with you but keep in mind that minor skin melanoma's are very treatable with great success when caught early so I would try not to worry!!

yeah that is what i have read so I am hoping that IF it does come back irregular then it is early enough to treat without any issues.

Saying a prayer for you. I had a light brown patch on my cheekbone a few years ago. It kept getting bigger, so I had it checked out. It was a form of skin cancer that spreads quickly across the surface of the skin, but does not invade deeper tissue. icon_eek.gif

It was removed, and my dermatologist had a fit trying to remove it without leaving a scar. I have a slight scar, but am so grateful for early detection and early treatment.

Good luck - keep us posted.

All the best to you! With luck, it will be nothing, but I'm sure just knowing it could be something is causing you a lot of lost sleep. We've had a lot of bad news in my family lately, so I know what the waiting can do to your state of mind. Hug your kids and I'll include you in my prayers.

Amanda - You definitely have my prayers. While I hope that your result is negative, however if it is positive; skin cancers are very treatable. You have reacted quickly and your doctor has responded properly. As Jocmom said, "early detection and early treatment" are the keys to positive results.

thank you all! I will definately update when I hear from the Dr. I am feeling ok about it this morning, the day you get word saying you have to have a biopsy (right now!) is kind of nerve wracking. Little bit of sleep has calmed me down a bit and I am not nearly as nervous today as I thought I would be.
