atypical cells
I recently had a two moles biopsied from my back.  The results from them came back atypical cells.  They are now sending them for a second opinion.  Is it possible that i may have cancer.  I didn't get much information from them and the person who took the biopsy was a nurse practitioner not a doctor does this matter?

Hi.  "Atypical cells" on biopsy may signify either cancer, or a pre-cancerous condition (a condition which may later lead to cancer).  It is a good thing that they sent the biopsy specimen for a second opinion, just to make sure that the right diagnosis has been given.  Anyway, if the biopsy turns out to be malignant or pre-malignant, it would be wise to seek the opinion of a cancer specialist so that the next steps can be planned.
