can someone please tell me what this means? I have an excisional biopsy done with no evidence of invasive malignant melanoma, but what does the CAP stage mean?

thanks in advance

I believe they are speaking of the stages of the growth of the biopsy...The thing that is important is that you do not have any invasive malignant melanoma....From my knowledge of this problem, you are without this disease....Take care...
