Had what I thought was a mole biopsied took some out of center of spot. Came back negative. Went a couple years later. Dermtologist cause it was changing. He said it looked like scar tissue and wasnt concerned about it. Said it could be removed but would leave a hole in my arm. I am very paranoid about it and check it often myself. Do I trust the dr when he said it was just scar tissue?
