Moderate Dysplastic Nevus

I have had several dysplastic nevi removed. They all mostly have come back Moderate. My question is has anyone had melanoma or any other skin cancer that is smaller than the general 1/4" size they say to look for. I have 50-100 moles which are smaller than the "pencil eraser". I also have about 10 that are about the same size. The majority have irregular borders along with the lighter halo. I'm so afraid I have skin cancer that has went undiagnosed. I see my dermatologist every 3 months and he says they all look suspicious and to keep an eye on them and remove some here and there. I am so scared because I'm 32 with 2 little girls who are 3 and 8 months. I just want to know if I should be really looking at the smalls and focusing on them. If it's cancer will it grow? Who has had cancer that was smaller than the "eraser". Thanks for any and all help!!!! I greatly appreciate it all!
