Re: scar on face?... scared whats happening :'(
When a mole is removed from the face, not much is taken. It is usually a punch, and there might be one or two stitches involved. When all heals up, you will barely know where the mole was. Now, if it turns out the mole is cancerous (let us hope and pray it is NOT!), and a larger amount of skin must be removed, a doctor will involve a plastic surgeon if the area involves facial tissue. Naturally, the emphasis here is on dealing with the issue at hand, and if that involves cancer, you certainly don't want to deal with that! However, no one wants to live with the results of being horribly disfigured or scarred as a result of having cancerous lesions on their face, and a fact of skin cancer is that it is very typical of developing on the face due to sun exposure. Most of us are vain, and if left with the thought of living out our lives being horribly scarred, would probably rather forego treating the cancer. Terrible truth, that.
So, go to the specialist and if s/he recommends removal, allow it. Do question how it will look and what steps will be taken to avoid scarring. A doctor will be able to put you at your ease. Any mole removal on the face is going to elicit questions such as scarring - it's normal to be concerned about how one will look afterward! And also talk to the doctor about the event of further treatments. I'm sure your doctor will explain plastic surgery techniques that will be included to prevent scarring and disfigurment. These are perfectly normal questions and concerns when you are considering treatment on your face.
When you see before and after pictures of people who have undergone treatment of facial skin cancer, it's amazing. In some instances, these individuals have had significant amounts of skin removed on their noses and ears, and plastic surgeons have been able to re-create the areas to the point of not being to able to distinguish there has ever been surgery in that area! It can be bad enough to have deal with cancer in any of it forms and doctors are well aware of that. They also realize that their patients certainly don't want to deal with any cosmetic disfigurments.
