It's ussual practic: Yes, doctor makes an appointment to discuss results of skin biopsy (not necessarry malignant) and treatment. If you worry very much take with you supportive relative or freind. Be well and strong.

Sometimes sutures are also due to be removed, in addition to discussion of the results (good or bad).
