Not really: Good news that the pathology report showed no cancer. Your doctor will monitor you closely over the next months and examine your skin from head to toe every 6-12 months. Since the path did show atypical cells, you may be at risk for having a mole develop into cancer. What you should be concerned about is always checking for any moles that may look "funny" and see your doc. Always wear sun screen.
