I was at the dermatologist yesterday, I had a suspicious mole, and needed a biopsy, have you had a biopsy for a mole

Way too many to count. I’ve have at least 12 removed because they all came back as pre cancerous

I had one taken off. Small shot to numb the area, then she used used a device that was like a hole punch for skin. Very weird. It cut out a perfectly round plug around the mole, then they sent it off for testing. Family history of skin cancer.

Yes. Several. One cancer. Another they were sure was. Then prevented ones.

I get a skin survey done every year. I’ve had a few suspicious moles removed and tested. All negative.

Thanks, I’m not too worried, they said it’s probably nothing, better safe than sorry. 👍

Usually they are contained. Easy to remove. BOYFRIEND, this old lady knows of what she speaks. Get your ass to the Dr. Bring your arm along.

It stung a little, but not much.

You really should, it’s simple and easy if they need to do a biopsy, I wouldn’t worry about it.

Thx everyone.

One was stage one. Gone fast. The suspected ones were ok. Get in my friend.

Had a couple. One was surgically removed. I go to the dermatologist every 6 months. Paying for the “sins” of my youth.

No but...I had what I thought was suspicious and they froze it off. The base of it is still there so I’m going to need to go back.
