Mohs surgery is used to treat the most common skin cancers, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma, as well as some kinds of melanoma and other more unusual skin cancers. Mohs surgery is especially useful for skin cancers that:
Have a high risk of recurrence or that have recurred after previous treatment
Located in areas where we want to preserve as much healthy tissue as possible, such as around the eyes, ears, nose, mouth, hands, feet, and genitals
Have borders that are hard to define
Are large or aggressive
Mohs surgery is an improvement to standard surgery (local excision), which involves removing visible cancer and a small margin of surrounding healthy tissue all at once. Mohs surgery allows surgeons to verify that all cancer cells have been removed at the time of surgery. This increases the chance of a cure and reduces the need for additional treatments or additional surgery.
