I hope that I help other not to wait when diagnosed. Cancer only spreads, it does not go away. It keep coming back to me about the cost and it was $30, 000 but insurance covered majority of it. I am on a payment plan with the above doctors and hospital to pay $3, 000. several cancer removal... READ MORE

I had a small carcinoma on my nose which had to be removed, conventional surgery would have left a scar which I obviously didn't want. So I had MOHS surgery followed a procedure to replace the damaged area of skin. Doctor Ross performed a procedure called a flap which didn't entail having a... READ MORE

I had a brown spot on my cheek under my eye. It had been there for probably about 6 years. I truly thought it was an age spot or sun spot. I had been to a dermatologist and he tried freezing it. That didn't work. I had been to another doctor and he had zapped it twice with a laser to try to... READ MORE

I had a small light brown area developing on my cheek for a few years, I tried over the counter bleaching compounds as it started getting bigger in size and more noticeable to no real effect. I had a dermatologist look at it and she said it was probably just due to age and to keep an eye on... READ MORE

Dr. Tutrone performed two levels of moh's surgery in long beach. I then went to dr. Lawrence Lin in great neck for reconstruction. Both doctors were pleasant and competent. I really liked Dr Lin though. He was very compassionate and made me asccomfortable as possible. The numbing needles... READ MORE

I have this mark on my nose for 4 years maybe more. It started as a tiny little red spot that would go away and come back a little bigger then it would sometimes bleed. None of my derms or GP questioned I think because of how young I was when it started (19). This last year it started turning... READ MORE

56 yo female. I had a pimple like spot on the end of my nose for 26 months prior to Moh's. The first 13 months my general practitioner thought it was related to my rosacea. It failed to respond and grew slightly larger, and bleed off and on. Around 13 months, I went to see a dermatologist, he... READ MORE

After discovering basal cell carcinomas on my cheek and nose, I had Moh's surgery performed to remove them. Unfortunately the procedure left a 3cm x 2.7cm hole in my cheek and a 1.5cm x 1.7cm hole on my nose. These were too large for the Moh's surgeon to close, so I was referred to Dr. Leland... READ MORE

I visited my Brother John one day, after finding a cute "Tony the Pony" type toy for his Grandson. I took it home, fixed it all up & when I went to deliver it with My Grand daughter- he noticed a lesion in my nose & said "you have basal cell there on your nose".... I replied, No; the doctors...

The motivation was to address a recurring cancer on the end of my nose which had spread through my columella to my upper lip over a 23-year period. Since I contracted skin cancer in 1992, I had been treating this particular area with two different dermatologists yet it kept recurring. Dr. Khanna... READ MORE

I was diagnosed with skin cancer and a day later i called Dr ross and was booked in that day for a consultation. He squeezed me in between his appointments that day which was really kind of him....the following week i had my surgery and I cant thank Dr. Ross, vicki his secretary and all of their... READ MORE

I had thought that red mark was from my rosacea medicine - I mentioned it to my dermatologist's office and they had me come in for him to take a look at. Dr. Borenstein took a biopsy and sure enough - Basal Cell - his office explained what needed to be done and quickly set up my surgery date... READ MORE

Had mohs today to remove a 1cm basal cell from the left side of my nose. I had infiltrative bcc, which was removed in 2 stages. The Mohs defect was about the size of a us nickle when complete. The whole experience was kind of fun and educational. Not a horrifying experience like I was reading... READ MORE

He removed a 1/3 inch spot of basil cell from my arm and left a 4 /12 inch Frankenstein scar that I am now having his former practice fix which will likely require surgery. Despite my questions in advance whether this should be done by a plastic surgeon - he did it anyway and magically... READ MORE

After having lower eyelid Mohs surgery for squamous cell cancer at the Huntsman Center in Salt Lake City, Dr. Patel stayed after hours to reconstruct the large hole left by the surgery. My eye looks great, the surgery was a success. My eye functions properly. It is great to have a Doctor with... READ MORE

I had been going to Dr Keeling for a couple years for laser to reduce redness and Botox. I noticed a small pimple that didn't go away. He took the time to examine even without an appt with him (only the laser tech) and biopsied right away. The scar on my forehead is not noticeable at all and I... 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

If there is a dermatologist that wants to cut up your face and doesn't do MOHS Surgery - DON'T LET THEM!! I go to the Skin Cancer Center and have had two MOHS surgeries. My surgeon was trained by a plastics guy and let me tell you it's really worth it. You can't see either scar AT ALL. Surgery... 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

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
