I received the results of my biopsy today. I had a small mole removed on my wrist (about 5mm in diameter) and it came back with melanoma in situ. I understand that, short of the all clear, this is pretty good result. They want me to come back in for them to remove additional skin around the site however.
My question is that in the biopsy, they did a shave removal and got pretty deep and quite wide around the mole. From anyone else's experience, do you know why they want to go further? I'm a bit worried about the scarring (although not so much to not go through with it) given it's in such a visible area.
Thanks for the input anyone can share!
