So Mihm didn’t find any Vertical Growth Phase. Congratulations! Pathology is read by human beings, all with different training and expertise. I believe Dr. Mihm to be one of the best. I hope you will now rest easy.
Easier, anyway. But, still staying vigilant – this disease seems to jump up and bite you as soon as you let your guard down. I’ll count my blessings at this point and hope this is the only dealing with it I’ll ever have.
It looks like most opinions point toward RGP and away from VGP and mitoses. Isn’t it also true that mitotic figures are most prevalent within lesions greater than half a millimeter and that lesions less than half are not prone to spread, regardless of VGP?
