My daughter who is 4, had this mole removed on Friday. It was on the sole of her foot. It has grown about 2mm in 2 years as her foot as grown almost 3 sizes. It wasn't bothering her in anyway. The derm decided to remove it because it was in such a hard to watch place. I am nervously awaiting the biopsy. The procedure was so traumatic for her and I hope to put this all behind us. Any opinions on how the spot looks??? Normal? Hope someone can help. Thanks!
I personally think it looks fine. I'm not a doctor but if you search acral nevi you will see tons of benign moles that look like that. They do look odder on the feet. She does have a good reason for it having grown but I guess better safe than sorry. I hope you hear the good news soon.
Well....it came back moderately atypical compound nevus(dysplastic). She needs to have the margins re-done since the derm didn't get it all. We will have this done under anesthesia, because the local biopsy was TRAUMATIC for her. Not great news....but I guess it could be worse. Thanks for your input.
