Re: Best basal cell carcinoma treatment

I had the Mohs yesterday, on a basal cell on my neck that came back 6 years later. It looked initially like 2 small dots, but the area was irritated after the initial biopsy. Well, this surgeon took a chunk the size of a quarter out of my neck. I had to wait 2 hours to get the all clear. Think he was not able to sew me back up, so I was sent off to a plastic surgeon, who squeezed me in. Thank goodness he has a good reputation. The nurses who assisted said he did a great job and I would be pleased.

I am NOT pleased that I didn't know the Mohs guy would take off so much. I thought Mohs meant taking off think layers. He showed it to me after....I wonder if he was thinking I could just live with it like that!
