A 31-year-old female asked:
incisional biopsy- does a mole that was picked off, but needed biopsy, have to wait for wound to heal before a biopsy can be done?

No: The biopsy or re-excision can be done any time. You do not need to wait for the area to heal. You should go see a dermatologist or a primary care doctor who can check you and excise this area if there is any suspicion of melanoma in your case.
