Effective, Efficient Skin Cancer Care
Mohs surgery utilizes microscopic guidance to precisely target the affected site. This technology has been in use for more than 60 years, making it one of the most widely studied and well-documented forms of skin cancer treatment.
Because Mohs surgery is so precise, it can be used to treat skin cancer growths in cosmetically sensitive areas. Mohs surgery can also be used to treat difficult forms of skin cancer. An oncologist, surgeon, or other care provider might recommend that a patient seek Mohs surgery in particular as a part of their treatment.
Better Treatment For Different Types Of Cancer
Different varieties of skin cancer are known to respond to different forms of therapy. Mohs surgery might be used to treat cancer with several different characteristics, including:
- Located in areas of critical function and cosmetic concern (such as lips, nose, around the eyes, genitals, hands, and feet)
- Ill-defined margins
- Large and aggressive
Mohs surgery has been used to treat skin cancer for years because it has many important benefits. For instance, this form of surgery can address the microscopic branches that surround the central tumor. Leaving these branches untreated might lead to a recurrence at a later date. Tracking the removal of the tumor using microscopic imaging allows the surgeon to leave healthy tissue undamaged while precisely targeting the cancer.
