Therefore, under the advice of her stylist and her own common sense, Korey went to see a dermatologist. She went to consult with MetroHealth dermatologist Pam Davis. Here, the specialist could look at the mark and determine whether it was cause for alarm. Davis agreed with Phillips’ concern and ordered a biopsy.
When the biopsy results came back, they revealed that Korey had a melanoma on her head. Luckily though, Korey explains, “If you’re going to have melanoma, it’s the best melanoma to have. They talked about a melanoma in situ.” This means Korey’s melanoma is, “just at the skin level, the epidermis level and it hadn’t infiltrated down.”
