May i know the simple explanation for this diagnosis: (post auricular area), excision biopsy: cellular spindle cell lesion favor nodular fascitis?
Get 2nd opinion: A pathologist who trained at one of my institutions self-diagnosed a sarcoma and had his arm amputated, only to discover later it was nodular fasciitis, which is very benign.

I'm confused) I wonder if something was left unexamined or if the main "mass" or problem was missed.
