    Just had a wide excision on my shin for an “evolving melanoma in situ.”

    I’m now freaking out about other moles that I’ve never liked/given me a bad feeling and questioning the derm’s opinion on “it’s fine.” I am going back in two weeks to get my stitches out and am going to push for a biopsy.

    Has anyone had a 2nd primary and were the symptoms the same?

    Get a copy of the pathology report and we can go over it. Was it read by a dermatopathologist? So this melanoma appeared on top of where a previous one existed? Where are you going for treatment?
