I've had the Mohs procedure done with 3 spots of squamous cell carcinoma over the last 5 years. The worst part was sitting in the waiting room waiting for the results back to see if the Doctor needed to cut some more. Except for the little "bite" shaped piece of my ear missing, all the other spots healed with no noticeable scars. Too many hours working in the sun without protection in my younger days

I wear more long sleeved shirts and wide brimmed hats not, than I used too.
