To begin with, I'm a pale person with a lot of moles, but growing up I never even heard melanoma or any of its dangers even being mentioned, which lead to some stupid decisions.
To cut long story short, before I even properly read up on melanoma, I had two of my moles removed. First one I removed by myself as a teenager after reading up on mole removal on the internet and the second one was a raised mole that I had recently gotten removed with a laser at a beauty clinic.
Before removing this mole the dermathologist looked at it with the dermatoscope and agreed to proceeding, but she didn't give me much information on the mole. Does it mean, that the mole was most definitely safe to remove?
After I got it removed I read on the internet that such moles shouldn't be removed with laser for it's impossible to do biopsy later. My question is, can melanoma still be detected even after the mole was removed in such way? I've lately been feeling really hypochondriac and I'm freaking out really badly. Does anybody have similar experience or thoughts to share?
