“Mohs surgery is a technique used to treat various malignant skin conditions. Most often, this procedure is recommended to patients with a basal cell carcinoma or a squamous cell carcinoma
The Medication Numbs the Affected Area
After you arrive at the clinic, you receive an injection of a local anesthetic. The doctor removes the cancerous tumor and a small piece of normal skin surrounding the tumor. The removed growth is subjected to a histological examination.
Experts study it across the entire perimeter and depth. This examination shows whether cancer cells still remain in the patient’s body and whether they need additional surgery.
Comprehensive Treatment and Staining
This technique helps operate on different areas of the face including nose and eyelids. Cancerous cells cannot be seen by the naked eye. This is why specialists carefully examine the removed tissues under the microscope. In the end, doctors confirm complete elimination of the cancerous tumor.”
