We just heard back from my lovely PV skin cancer doctor. It turns out my instincts were correct. The mole I had removed was cancerous, but the margins were clear--which means no further treatment.
Not to nag--but if I had put off seeing the doctor for six months or a year (which is so easy to do), this would be a different post. I would be going home for cancer treatment. So get your skin checked. Annually.
