Abnormal mole furhter excision
So, this is my story:
Went to the dermatologist last year for my 6 months mole check, I had noticed a mole that grew quickly, showed it to the dermatologist who decided to ignore it. Went back last week and the mole got darker so he decided to remove it.
Biopsy came out abnormal (considering suing doc at this point but that's a different story).
Doctor said I need to remove more tissue and get stitches, asked him if there is any way to have it remove without leaving visible scar he said NO and he said that I'll have a permanent scar forever, no matter what I asked he kept on saying I'll have a scar forever - very nasty doctor. And when I mentioned that I HAD ASKED HIM to REMOVE the mole last year his answer was :"so next time I am gonna remove all the moles on your body so you won't have to worry anymore" - what kind of immature answer is that??!!!
He suggested to see a plastic surgeon.
I found a doc specialized in the Moh's method who also performs regular excisions with stitches and uses laser to remove scar in case he will leave any (for free).
I went to a plastic surgeon for another mole removal and he didn't do a good job AT ALL, I had to massage the scar for 6 months to flat it out and now, after 4 years, I still have a visible scar. So I am considering going to this other doctor who is not a pastic surgeon but apparently is very good.
Any suggestions? who should I go to? Mole is on my chest.
