Skin Cancer is no joke! Over the years I’ve learned early prevention and detection is key! The sins of our youth can take years to rear it’s ugly head. I had My first Mohs surgery in February for a squamous cell on my right cheek. Luckily for me, I work for the best Mohs surgeon in central Florida and ended up with a barely visible scar.As a 46 year old guy- who didn't take proper precautions when he was younger- I can't agree strongly enough! Over the last two years, my accumulation of dermatologist procedures has included:
* Two Mohs surgeries for squamous cell, on my temple and forehead. (Healing up from the latter right now.)
* A "regular" surgery for basal cell off to one edge of my forehead/hairline. (Got a nice big Zorro scar as a souvenir for that one.)
* Assorted blasts of liquid nitrogen to freeze little cancerous spots.
