If you are affected by skin cancer, you should want to go for the best medication. There are about 1.2 million people suffering from skin cancer in US alone. If you are diagnosed with skin cancer, it should be treated at the earliest so that it will not progress further. There should not be any panic when you have access to the most advanced treatment. The cosmetic impact will be minimized and the disfiguration will be avoided. You can undergo cosmetic treatment even though previous treatments failed.
There are different kinds of treatments for skin cancer. There are some cancer cells which are not visible to your eyes. These cancer cells are removed completely so that re-growth is arrested in a very efficient manner. Cancer cells more prominently around ear, nose, lips and scalp. They will grow very rapidly and without any control. Mohs Surgery is a micrographic surgery through which the job will be done in a very efficient manner. The skin cancer will be removed with great precision under the observation of microscope. The cure rate is highest. It is up to 99%. The chance of re-growth is very low. The scarring or disfigurement is minimal.
The surgical removal of skin cancer is very efficient with Mohs. There will be perfect identification and removal of cancer. The cancer roots will be further examined by Mohs Surgeon. A map of the surgical site and a microscope is used to trace the path of the tumor. After removing the tumor, thin layer of tissue will also be removed from the tumor site. The precise location of any remaining cells will be drawn. Another thin layer of skin will be removed if cancer cells are suspected. The newly removed tissue will be examined microscopically. The evidence of disease will be shown by microscopic analysis.
The layer by layer process will be continued until complete cancer cells are removed. Healthy and normal tissue will be saved. In this process, the diseased tissue will be removed and healthy tissue will be retained. The root of the cancer will be treated in Mohs surgery. Visible portion of the tumor will be removed surgically. The removed skin layer will be divided into sections. Each section will be color coded with dyes. A map of the surgical site will be prepared. The undersurface and edges of skin will be examined microscopically. If there are any cancer cells, the location will be marked on the map. The removal of cancer cells will take place precisely.
Moh surgery can be done when the cancer is large. Even though the edges of cancer cannot be defined properly, the operation can be done. Healthy tissue will be preserved and maximum functionality is achieved. There will be quick resolution and rapid recovery. The surgery will be performed on an out-patient basis. There will be absolute peace of mind. Some changes will be made after diagnosis so that better treatment can be offered to the patient. You should take precautionary measures such as getting protection from sun light without fail.
