1. Is Mohs always the best skin cancer removal treatment?

There are several reasons that Mohs is a preferred method of skin cancer treatment. However, that does not mean that it’s the most suitable treatment for every person or every skin cancer tumor.
Some of the situations for which Mohs is highly effective include:

  • Skin cancers on the face or other visible areas.
  • Skin cancers in areas where tissue-sparing is imperative, including the hands, feet, eyes, and genitals.
  • Cases in which there is a high risk of recurrence.
  • Cases of recurrent skin cancer.
  • Skin cancers that are very large or fast-growing.
  • Skin cancers with ill-defined borders.
2. How effective is Mohs surgery?

The Mohs procedure is widely considered the most effective treatment for many basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas. During the treatment process, 100 percent of the margins of the growth are examined. At the same time, healthy tissue is spared. Mohs has the highest cure rate among all skin cancer treatments, up to 99 percent for new skin cancers. Its cure rate for recurrent skin cancers is up to 94 percent.
