Mohs surgery offers the highest cure rate among treatments for skin cancer and can be used for practically any type of skin cancer.
There are many advantages to Mohs surgery compared to other other skin cancer treatments including its high cure rate and cost-effectiveness. Mohs is especially appropriate for skin cancers that:
- Develop on areas where preserving cosmetic appearance and function are important
- Have recurred after previous treatment or are likely to recur
- Are located in scar tissue
- Are large
- Have edges that are ill-defined
- Grow rapidly
