melanoma
can you please explain what this mean to someone that has no background in any medical terms.


The histologic sections demonstrate a broad, asymmetric,and poorly circumscribed compound melanocytes proliferation.  The melanocytes at the dermoepidermal junction are configured both in nests and single cells and show full thickness pagetoid spread...  the melanocytes are mainly epithelloid with large nuclei.  Focal ulceration is also present.  Nests of melanocytes extend down adnexal structures.  The melanocytes in the dermis are configured both in nests and single cells and are epithelloid and look similar to the melanocytes at the dermoepidermal junction.  A brisk inflammatory predominately lymphocytic infiltrate is present towards the periphery of the melanocytes in yhe dermis

Hi,
How are you? Melanocytes or the melanin pigment producing cells are usually found at the bottom layer of the skin's  epidermis layer. The histology report described the appearance and location of these specialized cells and also the presence of an ulceration and  inflammation. While the terms used are all technical description and may not be easily understood by non-medical and even medical people, it is recommended that you discuss the result with your dermatologist for proper evaluation and diagnosis. Factors that also considered include the symptoms and medical history of patient. Take care and best regards.
