I Went To Have Mole Checked - Mentioned The Tic Bite And Lump I Had On Top Of My Head For Over 10 Ye

Went to have dermatologist to have mole checked out - she looked at top of head where I mentioned I had a tick bite and beauticians and Doctors had looked at it for 10 years. PA did biopsy, had MOH surgery. What really concerns me is that when I went back about 2 months later for something else - PA looked at top of head - and said "oh that doesn't look right" - did another biopsy right next to where I had surgery - they check my whole body but only a quarter size on my scalp - this happened to a friend - went to another surgeon - like surgeon - do not like the unthorough PA who does biopsies -

Hi Dot

I hear you. Sometimes you may like the doctor but not the PA or nurse...or vice versa. if you ever have a problem with one of the medical folk who are treating you, I would make it known. If you are having a problem with the PA someone else might be too.
