My husband (39 y/o) has had several shaved biopsies performed. Dermatologist sent him for a biopsy which they took a 10x8x1mm specimen and 6x6x1mm. The report states 1) melanicytic atypia is of moderate to severe degree, 2) partial regression of superfically invasive malignant melanoma & regressing atypical compund melanocytic neoplasm (moderate to severe cytologic atypia).
Re-excision with one cm margins is advised. I'm unclear exactly what this all means? The dermatologist said everything was ok and revisit in one year for annual checkup.
