I recently had Mohs procedure done. I would like to tell you that it didn't hurt at all. The spot that I had on the surface of my nose was only about the size of a head of a straight pin. . My family doctor did not think it was cancer but we checked it out anyway.The type of skin cancer I had was basal squamous cancer. The size of the incision was the size of a nickel and the depth of 1/2 the size of a small marble. We talked about the different ways of closing the wound, I decided on stitches inside and out, because doing skin graft and skin flapping would have left an indent in the side of my nose. I would rather just a straight line. It has only been 5 days and I think it looks pretty good. why give myself more scars ie. from the taking of good skin for grafing or flapping
