I have a question about the biopsy that I had done. It was a shave biopsy, and it came back as melanoma in situ. I got a wide excision done, and it looks like there is still some of this mole left that was missed by the shave. If there was still melanoma cells in this left over part of the mole, is there any way it somehow got into my bloodstream, especially right after the biopsy was performed and it was initially bleeding? I am very worried and nervous that the previously contained melanoma is now traveling throughout my body.
