Mohs micrographic surgery is a safe and effective treatment for skin cancer. During Mohs surgery, cancerous tissue is removed in small sections.
We can remove a mole safely and easily during 1-2 office visits via surgical excision or shave. If there is any suspicion that a mole contains cancer, it will be examined under a microscope (biopsy).
Sun exposure and fair complexion are risk factors for skin cancer. There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.
These lesions are benign, but can be large, painful, or cosmetically unappealing for patients. They can evaluated during an office visit and can be surgically removed.
