Derm noted 3 moles on back. All 3mm or under. One shade and pretty much round or oval. He said slightly dysplastic so best to remove now. What does that mean. .. Are they likely to be melanoma?
Dysplastic. Nevi are not yet melanoma but precursors to melanoma......Best removed.
Signs. Aad malignant melanoma: asymmetry: 1 half is unlike the other. Border: irregular, scalloped or poorly defined. Color: varied with shades of tan, brown or black; or white, red or blue. Diameter: > 6 mm. Evolving: mole /skin lesion looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color. An irregular mole that itches, bleeds or is painful is worrisome for possible cancer.
