hi brussels,

your melanoma is similar to my 0.25 mm three years ago.

i would query the Margins – lateral – present on your report. im not really sure what they mean by this and id want to check that margin is definitely clear, especially if you decide on no further treatment.

even if both your deep and lateral are clear i would still have the WLE done. its great youre so positive but please give this some more thought. WLE are recommended for melanoma for a reason after all.

after the WLE, you shouldnt have to deal with this again as all your factors are very low risk.

just be really careful about your sun exposure and keep a close eye on your skin. i had some good photos of my other moles done and compare them to my skin every four months.

kind regards
