Skin Cancer & Mohs Surgery

Melanoma is expected to affect 1 in 52 men and 1 in 77 women in the United States at some point in their lives. Despite the fact that melanoma is one of the fastest-growing types of cancer in humans, new treatments are taking a long time to develop, and the fatality rate continues to rise. We now know that this type of cancer has multiple well-defined risk factors. Skin cancer is treated with Mohs surgery, which is one of the most precise surgical techniques available. Thin layers of cancer-containing skin are gradually removed and evaluated during Mohs surgery, until only cancer-free tissue remains. Mohs micrographic surgery is another name for Mohs surgery.
