The Basics of Pdema Skin Cancer Removal
Healthy Skin Monitoring Best Practices
Monitor face, ears, neck, chest, and belly. Women will need to lift breasts to check the skin underneath. Check underarms, both sides of arms, the tops and palms of hands, in between fingers as well as under fingernails and toe nails.
The best time to do a skin check is after a shower, in a brightly-lit room. Move through each section of the body. Start at the top of the head, face, ears, scalp, body, legs and toes (in between each toe)

Frequently Asked Questions
How is Mohs different from regular surgery?
The difference between Mohs surgery and routine excisional surgery is that Mohs is done in stages while you wait for lab results, which are obtained immediately on site, rather than the tissue sample being sent to a lab for results days later.
Is Mohs surgery just for melanoma?
Mohs surgery is a highly skilled and precise surgical technique for the removal of various types of face, head and neck skin cancers, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma.
How long is recovery after Mohs surgery?
The Mohs surgery recovery process can take up to 2 weeks. During this time, keep your wound clean and dry, apply ointment, and protect the area from sun exposure. Stitches may need to be removed after 7-10 days.
How painful is Mohs surgery?
Mohs surgery is nearly painless. Patients typically experience very little pain during and after Mohs surgery, apart from the initial injection of an anesthetic to numb the area beforehand
