They did a biopsy on my dad for it. Turned out to be squamous cell, and they took it out. He is fine-- this was at least 15 years ago.

Hope everything turns out well!

My son was diagnosed at age 11. Had 3 halo nevi and one large mole taken off his back. Took a couple attempts to get clear margins, but they finally did 2 months later...been well ever since, though at 34 he's pretty sick of me reminding him about sunscreen....good luck! I am sending good thoughts in abundance your way!

Clean margins all around. Dr called yesterday to let me know. Happy lady over here. The skin graft looks nasty but hey.

Fabulous news, Summer! You must be so relieved! Those kinds of health scares are terrifying.
