What It Is and How It Benefits Patients
Skin cancers are incredibly common, with an estimated 5.4 million cases per year according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. This makes effective treatment for this kind of cancer very important. Luckily, Mohs surgery has a long record of success, and its effectiveness has increased over time. Many studies put the success rate of this procedure around 99 percent. In a study from 2010, only three local recurrences of SCCs occurred out of 260 incidents. That’s only a 1.2 percent recurrence rate, making it the most effective approach to squamous cell skin cancers.
