Misdiagnosed-now with stage 3b cancer

I went to her in 2009 to have her look at a suspicious mole-she said her son has the same one and not to worry about it. In 2013, I insisted my Dr. take it off. Found out it was stage 3b melanoma cancer. Went to mayo and they gave me 43% chance of survival within 10 years. If only she would have caught it earlier then I wod have had a lot better chance. Whatever derm you go to-if they hesitate to take a mole off that is remotely suspicious then go elsewhere. Afterward my mayo surgery and lymph nodes removal I called to follow up and I couldnt even talk to her directly-her nurses blew me off and said that I am now a mayo patient not theirs. On the positive side she is nice and easy to get an appt with. I will however will be going elsewhere (now to a medical oncologist and a derm with cancer experience. If caught earlier the melanoma would t have spread to my lymph nodes. We all make mistakes but when it is so easy to remove a mole that is suspicious I feel she let me down
