How long should it be painful?

I had MOHS Surgery on my shin bone almost 1 year ago to the day, The surgery site still remains red, swollen and very painful. Walking long periods of time makes it throb. The surgery site is about the size of a quarter. The area is sunken in where they removed the cancer.

Pain in shin bone after Mohs

Pain after mohs is often location dependent but it should NOT linger, this should be evaluated by your mohs surgeon. 

I recommend you to discuss specific issues regarding your questions with your dermatologist.
