I was in denial about this changing freckle. It was a brown spot I'd had for 8 years since my last child was born. It was lasered, but came back with a vengeance. My vanity had caused me to ignore common sense, I didn't want it biopsied. I didn't want a scar on my face. Funny, when I finally... READ MORE

I had my BCC biopsied 4 years ago. The story behind my initial Moh's appointment is too long to get in to. I foolishly procrastinated out of fear of the surgery & because it's a benign skin cancer. I have psoriatic arthritis & in order to begin the more aggressive drugs, I was told the BCC had... READ MORE

So, I have seem the reviews. and this was absolutely correct. I has basal cell cancer, and also I can never remember the other nam, I call it octopus squid surgery, it's when the keep cutting you open till it's all gone. Basal no problem 4 shots, and dug it out in 20 minutes,and done. The squid... READ MORE

I was surprised at how large my suture site is compared to how small my biopsy site was. I am 5 days post op and hoping that the puckering at the edge of my suture site will decrease with time. I am also surprised at the amount of pain I had, which luckily gets better daily. I am trying to stay... READ MORE

July 16, 2015 I am writing this blog because I hope to help others that have been diagnosed with Basal Cell Carcinoma. On the morning of my surgery I walked into the hospital and told them that I did not want the plastic surgery done. I decided this after surfing the web and finding others with... READ MORE

So I'm finally leaving my review as this site helped me a lot after I was diagnosed and was researching my options. I had a mohs surgery for a bcc on the side of my nose/cheek in Nov 2014. The bcc itself looked so tiny and it was a nodular bcc so we didn't think removing it would be a big deal.... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with a squamous cell carcinoma on my cheek in May by my dermatologist. Mr Ross saw me within a few days of my diagnoses and explained in detail the options available to me. He managed to fit me in for reconstructive surgery the day after I had the carcinoma removed as he was... READ MORE

As I write this review, I am 4 days post-op (surgery date: 8/19/14) following MOHs surgery to remove a small spot on my nose, that was found to be cancerous - basal cell carcinoma (BCC). I've had this spot for about 2 years before I did anything about it. Before the procedure, it could be... READ MORE

I recently had MOHS surgery and I am very pleased with the results. Was very worried I was going to have to have a forehead flap but Dr Bordeaux was able to use skin from the bridge of my nose to repair the damage. I had 4 layers of skin removed and was left was a hole 10mmx12mm. He and his... READ MORE

Dr. Tjelmeland's expertise is well known to me. My wife, mother and daughter have all been to him for various procedures. I was diagnosed with a basal cell carcinoma just lateral to my left eye in the temporal area in November of 2014. I was worked in to see him and Cindy - he and every single... READ MORE

Hello My skin had a lot of sun damage. When I was young, I did not use sunscreen and I have a fair complexion, so I got burned a lot. I have been going to a dermatologist regularly for the past 25 years. About 18 years ago, I went through a course of treatment with Efudex. About a year ago, my... READ MORE

I had a BBC removed via Mohs surgery almost two weeks ago. I'm posting my positive experience to reassure anyone who requires this procedure on their forehead. It wasn't so bad. The doctor I saw was fantastic, the procedure went by quickly, and I was stitched up and out the door in just a few... READ MORE

Referred by my dermatologist for Mohs surgery on my ear. Dr,Kaufman and staff are very professional and caring. I've had 3 other Mohs surgeries by other surgery centers, but this one was by far the most comfortable. Great advice from the staff on post surgery care. Don't procrastinate. get it... READ MORE

I am 58 and just had mohs 16 Feb 2015 on my nose left sidewall and was so terrified and worried not knowing how much cutting they had to do! I will be three weeks on Monday. Most of the wound is closed. I can cover the red, bumpiness with makeup and will soon have to return to work. I have an... READ MORE

Went to the dermatologist June 27 for a first-time evaluation. I realized that being a mom and getting older required me to take time out for my own well being and health. In my younger years, I admit that I used the tanning beds and laid out every summer to achieve that golden tan. Always... READ MORE

I had MOHS on my nose recently -I have had MOHS on my shoulder in the past, as well ( along with quite a few other skin cancers) and I thought the nose turned out much better.... As time goes by, the scar- which is minimum as it is, will only decrease..... MOHS takes a bit more time but is worth... READ MORE

At age 26, I went to see a dermatologist about another issue, but I figured, Hey! While I'm here, can you get this tiny little, flesh colored wart like bump out of the groove of my nose, that's been hanging out for a year or 2? I was surprised that they wanted to biopsy it. I was even more... READ MORE

I had MOHS surgery 10 days ago because I was told it was my only option. The whole procedure was downgraded to a tiny little cut that I wouldn't feel because of the lidocaine. Well, the cut was huge and deep and the stitches long and ugly, the mental and physical pain were much more than expected. READ MORE

When I was told I may have skin cancer, I was beside myself. I considered ignoring it, hoping it would just go away. Reluctantly, I scheduled the appointment for surgery, without doing any of my own research. The dermatologist reassured me that the ocular plastic surgeon was the best in... READ MORE
