Re: Best basal cell carcinoma treatment

I've had two basal cell cancers cut off. One was on my arm and one on my cheek under my eye. I never had anything burned after surgery. The doctor sent what she cut off to be biopsied and the margins came back clear. My dermatologist wasn't keen on using the cream. She said it would leave my skin irritated. I was amazed at the minimal scarring on my face. They took a picture and then designed the cut to blend in with the natural lines. I can't see the scar unless I really look close and then it's just a thin line. The cutting took a lot less time to heal, about 2 weeks, compared to 6 weeks of irritation using the cream.
