If your mole was sent to another lab for second opinion, it does not mean it is necessarily a bad diagnosis. It only means that your pathologist was possibly concerned about something and either wants to make sure that he or she is not overdiagnosing something that is benign but looks little different or they want to make sure that it is something really to worry about and get an accurate diagnosis from an expert. Usually, cases like yours (mole) are sent by general pathologists to dermatopathologists (expert in skin pathology including moles) for second opinion for borderline cases and the treatment can differ based on the diagnosis. The major categories of diagnosis are benign moles (no further treatment), atypical moles (treatment depends on degree of atypia and margins), melanoma in situ (usually wide excision) and melanoma (depends on the stage).

The assessment should include history of recent lactation or any family history of breast cancer. Per se, pain and heaviness in breast alone, do not suggest breast cancer. If you have lump or strong family history of breast cancer, the screening tests can include breast ultrasound or mammography to start with, if assessed to be clinically necessary.
