Red face Best basal cell carcinoma treatment

I have a Basal Cell Carcinoma on my collarbone which will need treatment. I was presented with two choices: cut and burn, or 6-weeks of chemotherapy cream. My brother has had many BCC's removed and he said that cutting is fine, but that burning leaves an itchy spot that doesn't go away.

Is cutting the best method for total removal?

If so, do have to have the burning procedure also?

Is there less scarring when using the cream?

Is the cream 100% effective?

What are the advantages and disadvantages of these treatments?

Thank you so much for any advice you can provide.
