I am due to have a biopsy on my foot 9/26 for a suspicious lesion on my foot. The doctor is telling me it's suspicious for melanoma. My question is this. The spot is about 6mm and they are taking 2.5x2.5 inch area from the bottom of my foot. Does that seem like overkill? I will not be able to put any weight on it for 3 weeks they are telling me. Is that the first step the doctors should be taking?
