Seborrheic keratosis or melanoma?

Does the spot in my pic look concerning? I went to the dermatologist today and they said it looked like seborrheic keratosis but cut it off for a biopsy just in case. Now I’m scared bc I googled that seborrheic keratosis is commonly mistaken for melanoma.

  1. @lisaabott...It sounds like you are already on the right track since you have seen the doctor and had biopsy.

    Be careful when googling. It can be a double-edged sword. While you'll find helpful images and articles, you can definitely freak yourself out.

    If you don't mind me asking, how did your biopsy turn out? I hope you were able to get some answers and reassurance from your doctor.

    Keeping you in my thoughts. Keep being proactive!
