I recently went for an annual physical (not for the FAA) to a doc who is not my AME. He decided he'd like to remove a mole from my back, but said it did not look like melanoma. So a couple weeks later I went back for the removal/biopsy and he removed it using a punch tool. The lab report came back as: Final Diagnosis: "Junctional melanocytic nevus with architectual disorder and mild cytologic atypia of melanocytes, transacted peripherally" Microscopic: "Sections revel a proliferation of mildly atypical melanocytes arranged predominantly in nests at the lentiginous and focally bridging dermal-epidermal junction. Pagetoid spread is not seen. The papillary dermis is fibrotic. There is a superficial perivascular infiltrate of lymphocytes and melanophages. The lesion extends to the peripheral specimen margin. Clinical follow-up is suggested." This is way too much medical lingo for me to understand. My doc said that it is not cancerous, but that he didn't quite get it all out as a tiny hairline was missed... thus the suggestion to follow up. He said he could remove the rest (at a future appointment) or just forget about it as he didn't see a problem. My insurance changed a few days later and I can no longer see this doc. How will this affect my next 3rd class medical? Do I need to go to my new doc and have the tiny sliver removed and re-biopsied ($1,000)? I guess I am a bit concerned about the "Clinical follow-up is suggested" even though my original doc didn't seem concerned. Thoughts?
