53 year old man with 4 month history of lesion back

This 53 year-old man noted a lesion on right upper back around 4 months ago. It has tripled in size since then. On first glance it looks like a BCC, but BCCs rarely grow like this. The patient has Type I - II skin and is covered with freckles. He has a strong family history of skin cancer. I excised this lesion immediately because I was worried that it might be an amenanotic melanoma. If the latter, this is scary since it will be a thick lesion. Say a prayer for this patient that this is BCC.
