I've written a book from first person perspective, and so far I've been calling it a fictional memoir, which I'm pretty sure is not a category. The book is psychological (there's only one character) and is about a biological mass murderer. It's pretty much all in the unnamed narrator's head and focuses on the mental state through developing a disease and the subsequent aftermath. Any help would be appreciated!

Since I'm assuming you're not actually a mass murderer, it's not a memoir, it's a novel. If it's done diary-entry style you can call it an "epistolary novel" but other than that it's a novel. Memoir denotes non-fiction, or at least some elements of non-fiction/inspired by life experience.

What Thrash said. Novel, period, end of discussion. Calling it anything else shows ignorance, so that's not advised.

Novels that don't fit comfortably into any genre are often referred to as "mainstream"
