So I had a mole biopsy done and am waiting on the results, however they were taking longer than usual so I called to see what was going on. They said they called the pathologist to make sure they got them and they did they just had “deeper sections” they needed to look at..this freaked me out. Does this automatically mean melanoma? Why would a normal mole have deeper sections?
