Skin Graft on the Nose after #Mohssurgery for #skincancer

There are a number of reasons why your skin graft might bubble after Mohs surgery for skin cancer. Often, the skin graft will cover a pore or follicle on the nose. This can literally create an acne cyst under the graft. If the graft did not heal completely, there might be granulation tissue present. Scar tissue can also behave in a similar manner. Ultimately, You should check with your surgeon to ensure the skin cancer is not reoccurring.
