A tiny, flesh-colored "dry patch" of skin on my upper eyelid was ever-so-slowly growing over a seven-year period. Five years into it I asked my (previous) dermatologist if it could be cancer and he said, "no; put some hydrocortisone on it". Two years after that I asked him again if it could be cancer and he said no and asked me if we should biopsy it. I said yes and he called a few days later saying it was superficial basal cell carcinoma and then suggested I use Aldara on it (which is not to be used on the eye area!) so Mohs was the only other option.
After two rounds of Mohs the cancer was removed and then Dr. Amadi did an amazing job of closing the wound. Approximately five days later his fantastic associate, Libby, removed the stitches and, aside from daily massage to help minimize scarring, it's virtually impossible to tell I once had a huge piece of my eyelid removed! If I ever have to go through Mohs surgery and reconstruction again, I will head over to see Dr. Amadi or Dr. Naficy again!
