Hi @bransun62, first of all, it’s completely normal to feel nervous about a mole. My derm gets back to me within two weeks, often more quickly if something is atypical. I’m sure there’s a range, and hopefully we’ll hear from others.

We actually had a Q&A about being concerned leading up to derm visits: https://skincancer.net/q-and-a/anxious-exams/. It deals with similar feelings, and might be helpful.

If it makes any difference, you have done what you can, and now it’s up to the derm to explain what’s next. We’re sending good luck your way, and hoping it is no skin cancer at all, or an easily treatable one. Please let us know what you find out, and check in whenever you need to.
