The “Hole” Truth about Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer diagnosed each year in the United states. Over the past 30yrs, more people have been diagnosed with skin cancer than all other kinds of cancers combined. These numbers continue to rise each year.

Each year in America, nearly 6 million cases of nonmelanoma skin cancer are diagnosed. 2000 people die from squamous cell or basal cell carcinoma each year and over 10,000 people die from Melanoma annually.

If you’re diagnosed with a skin cancer on your face. There are several ways to treat it but unless significant health issues exist – it should be dealt with in a timely manner.

Excision is the standard of care for facial skin cancers. MOHs surgery is a specialized procedure that removes the skin cancer WITHOUT removing excess skin that isn’t cancer. This is often done by a dermatologist with specialized training to see cancer under a microscope.
