basal for years

I went to my derm last week for a 6 month skin check. I've been going for years. All of the sudden he thinks a growth that has been on my temple for 10+ years is a basal and took a biopsy. Im waiting for the results but am curious as to why he overlooked this spot for the past 5 or so years ive been going for check ups. Im not happy.

Re: basal for years

Basals are not going to kill you. You wouldn't want to leave it there forever, because it could cause damage underneath. I think you will probably be fine. Let us know!
