I want to see if anyone might have any advice for me. I am a 33 yr old fair skinned female, who visited a dermotologist (for the first time) last month after noticing a weird mole like thing on my calf. The derm did not know what it was, and did a shave biopsy.
They called last week and said it was a "junctional spitz nevus with moderate to severe atypica, close to the peripheral shave border" and recommended I see a plastic surgeon for removal. I had a second opinion today (just from reading pathology report) and he said we could wait and see on it, or he could remove it in office.
I am planned to have it all removed by this dermotologist in 2 weeks, since I don't care about scarring, but I am concerned reading about Spitz Nevus and that they are often misdiagnosed melanoma. Does anyone else have experience or advice regarding treatment? Does this need closer monitoring than a different type of atypical mole? Are they likely to call me back after this second removal and tell me they need to continue testing? I am panicking and I don't know if it's truly warranted.
Thanks for any help or advice you can offer.
