so so stressed out by waiting for results on possible melanoma

Hi I am beyond stressed worrying about my biopsy results. My Dad had a melanoma 14 years ago and as a result I am vigilant about checking my moles. I have a dysplastic nevus on my shoulder that I have regular checks on however I went to a new dermatologist recently and he looked at it and said it needed to come off as he said it was heading towards a melanoma. I asked if it was a melanoma now and he said he couldn't say as some melanomas you cant tell without pathology results. He told me at best it is a dysplastic nevus still or at worse a melanoma in situ. Please could someone give me some reassurance as I am a nervous wreck.

Well done on being vigilant on getting checked out! Worse case scenario you have an insitu melanoma that can be easily cured by removal, best case it's a Nevus that you no longer need to worry about. I would not loose any sleep over it, sounds like you have caught it nice and early
