Our patient, Larry who recently spoke about his experience with , is at a follow up visit with Dr. Mejia who is a reputable skin cancer surgeon in South Florida. He shows some images of the basal cell carcinoma before the surgery. In this case, the patient neglected to take care of it earlier and it grew larger as time passed. Luckily with the Mohs skin cancer procedure, all the roots of the basal cells are removed .
After the removal of the skin cancer, Dr. Mejia did a plastic surgery closure which involved a flap procedure. Cosmetically, the patient is very happy with the result since the scar is hardly noticable because of the reconstructive surgery.
Dr. Mejia’s recommendation: Wear your sunblock and if you see any spots that are not healing, seek dermatological help.
