I had Mohs surgery about a week and a half ago, when I went in the office to start the procedure, I had high hopes as the cancer had been on my forehead for at least 8 years, that's right I could never afford to have it looked at til now because now I have Medicare. I had a free screening about a year ago at a very respected hospital where they had told me they were pretty sure it was either basal cell or squamous cancer, although I had already suspected this after internet research, my cancer resembled many photos I had seen.....so now I have a 10cm wound that covers almost all of my forehead, I have never seen pics even slightly close to the size of the one I now have...the Dr. only went 2 layers down and then had to stop due to the amount of cancer (and also the size of my wound). I now have a HUGE open sore on my head, I am due tomorrow for an office visit to change the dressing and discuss my options which are radiation, or a pill or more cutting.....I am wondering if I should have ever even started this since Basal Cell almost never causes death, I REALLY DOUBT if I would have just left it as it was if it would EVER have turned into the nightmare it is now HELP
