    MOHS surgery vs Plastic surgeon

    I have a very tiny basal cell on the left side of my nose. The dermatologist offered superficial radiation (90% cure) or MOHS surgery (98-99%). I have one friend who had MOHS and then their nose was so botched (a different dermatologist) that they then needed plastic surgery. I have another friend who has had 2 separate basal cell CA's and went to a plastic surgeon right off and was very happy. (That plastic surgeon sampled the edges in the OR and intraoperatively sent to pathology.)

    I'd be interested on anyone's thoughts or advice.
