Understanding Your Test Results and The Impact on Your Care
Your healthcare provider conducts a head-to-toe examination of your skin to identify any suspicious moles or growths. If there is concern, the mole will be removed (a skin biopsy) and sent to a dermatopathologist.
Dermatopathologists are highly trained physicians who specialize in the diagnosis of skin disorders using microscopes and laboratory tests. The dermatopathologist interprets the biopsy findings and reports them to your healthcare provider.
