thankyou for your post.... my dermatologist has decided that the dermoscopy results are good enough to say that the mark was fine. he says that if it were a melenoma as i have just picked it not actually cut it out that the dermascope would still show changes in the skin as it has healed. do you think this is all correct?? i dont no why i dont beleive him i maybe need to work on the anxiety issues?? i am really worried i have picked away a melenoma and it will be too late and it may have spread to far !! sounds silly but this is a real concern to me!! do you think i need to worry or not?? my derm says that this is why they cut out melenoma as apose to just scraping it off , because it doesnt just go away if you pick it off , they can still see it .... many thanks rebecca .. am i worrying un nessesary??
thankyou..... i have had another appointment with my derm today and he said there is absoulutly no need for a biopsy,..... the skin hasnt changed and is normal skin through a dermascope on the various magnifications. would you agree with him?? i think i beleive him but i am still doubting ..... many thanks
