Mohs Surgery and Skin Cancer Treatments


Description:

Dr Dev Shah a Consultant Dermatologist and Cutaneous Mohs Surgeon at BMI Bishops Wood Hospital looks at the treatments available for skin cancer with insight into his area of treatment expertise Mohs surgery. Mohs' micrographic surgery (MMS) is used to treat non-melanoma skin cancers when it is felt there is a high risk of the cancer spreading or returning, or the cancer is in an area where it would be important to remove as little skin as possible, such as the nose or eyes. It involves removing the tumour bit by bit, as well as a small area of skin surrounding it. This minimises the removal of healthy tissue and reduces scarring. Each time a piece of tissue is removed, it is checked for the presence of cancer. The procedure may need to be repeated two or three times to ensure the cancer is completely removed.
