I just got a mole surgically removed & got a biopsy for it? Help me understand " mild atypia"?
I got 2 moles removed from under my arm when I was growing up I only had one slightly big one. Then as I grew it grew with me. it got to the point where I was self conscious I mean it was right in the crease in my armpit. Then I started getting other ones near it. I had 2 new ones grow. So I saw a dermatologist and he said he wanted to surgically remove it and then have a biopsy on it. He removed the slightly large ones. at the same time. I had 11 stitches put. So today I went to get them removed and I got the biopsy report back. I will write to you what it says (I will clarify some words)
-Right upper mole: compound congenital nevus (a regular birthmark or mole)
-Right lower mole (the largest one): Compound congenital nevus of special site with focal MILD ATYPIA; margins free. see note.
the note: This case is evaluated with immunostains for HMB-45, MART-1 and TYOSINASE. KI-67 shows slight increase of intraepidermal mitotic index. The lesion is completely excised.
PLEASE ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THIS MEANS??????!!!
I am a 15 year old girl is it normal?
