Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
First, if there is no recurrence of pigment, there is nothing to worry about by now. Dermatopathologists ,if there is any doubt, will call it a melanoma-in situ. It sounds like your dermatologists were careful by going back with extra margins. This is good dermatology practice.
Ocular melanoma can also be picked up by a family physician so be sure he/she uses an ophthalmascope.
Ocular melanoma is pretty rare. I would ask your dermatologist to check your eyes too.
I would not be concerned. It sounds like you are being followed well. Ocular melanoma is less common in dark eyed people.
Do not think that would lead to increased melanoma.
