Mohs Vs Electrodessication & Curretage for Recurrent Bcc?
Had a lesion removed from left temple area. Dx was bcc. Recurred ~ 8 months later but smaller-about 5mm diameter. 2 schools of thought: 1. because recurred go directly to Mohs. 2. Since recurrence smaller why not a 2nd round of ed&c. Comparing these procedures would Mohs result in a larger surgical scar as it is deeper/larger surface (my assessment from photos posted) than ed&c? Is Mohs obligatory after recurrence. Why are multiple ed&c not advised if end result (bcc gone) the same. Thank you
