Having Mohs surgery done on my nose this morning. Had it done on my nose in 2017 in AZ. Guess they didn’t it get all and more decided to crop up. Love to hear any stories that ya’ll would have concerning your MOHS surgery.

    The rest of the story. Was in the dr office for 3 1/2 hrs. Had to have to cutting out of the cancerous cells. Have about an inch that was sutured with stitches. Will get them out on Thursday, 8/23. Not much pain at all. Guess I will live. LOL

      So happy to hear this. God bless you (and your beautiful little kitty!) Even though I know basal cell is nowhere near the danger of melanoma, I am still worried for my wife who will be getting MOHS on her cheek in about a week. Please send any prayers and good wishes! 🙂

    It is but the steri slips didn’t stay in place. Will see what kind of scar I end up with. But at my age, who really cares. LOL

    I hope the scarring won’t be bad, Mary.

    I will be getting MOHS surgery on my scalp in January or February. Waiting to hear from the medical center for my appointment. I will post how it goes.

    Had nose done 4 years ago by KAISER surgeon Dr. Snow, a former med student of Dr. Moh in Potland OR. Sliced the length. then sutured with tiny curved needle and fine gut. In 6 weeks the suture site was no longer visible. No reocurrence of bad cells. Have Pix of my bandages which drew copious comments from retirees in retirement home. Paul King

    Do not worry about basal cell with moh’s. I do the procedure all the time in my clinic. Yes at some later time you can have a new lesion come up. These cell’s that have have cell damage your whole life from radiation can again create another skin cancer. Basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas are local. < 1% of SCC can spread. Always have close follow up with your physician. In my 30 years I have never seen anyone die from local basal cell carcinoma. Melenoma is the one that can spread. All black or dark changing moles need biopsy

    Good Luck Rick
