The MOHS procedure is an effective surgical technique used to treat some of the most common forms of skin cancer.
Unlike other treatments for skin cancer, using the Mohs technique allows the surgeon to see where the cancer stops. The procedure begins with a surgeon removing the visible skin cancer and then removing a thin layer of the surrounding skin. The surgeon then looks at the removed skin under a microscope and determines if cancer cells exist and need to be further removed. The process continues until cancer cells no longer remain in the treated area.
Treatment areas include around the eyes, nose, lips, ears, scalp, fingers, toes, or genitals. Mohs surgery is recommended for basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas that are large, aggressive, or growing rapidly.
The patient is awake during the procedure and only the treatment area is injected with anesthetic. The procedure removes a layer of tissue, which is examined on-site by the surgeon. If cancer cells remain, the surgeon will remove another layer of tissue but spare as much healthy tissue as possible. The process is repeated until cancer cells are undetected. The wound may be left open to heal or closed with stitches.
And some have far reaching roots under the surface. Early detection and getting to the root of the tumor is important. Mohs has a high cure rate and removes the least amount of skin needed to treat the targeted area.
