Mohs surgery is nearly painless. Aside from the initial injection of anaesthetic to numb the area, patients will feel very little pain either during of after the surgery. Most clients have a pain level of 0 out of 10 after 24 hours, and any minor pain experienced can usually be handled with paracetamol or an over the counter pain medicine.
Mohs surgery, also known as chemosurgery, was created in 1938 by the American physician and general surgeon Dr Frederic E Mohs. The procedure is a microscopically-controlled surgery designed to treat common types of skin cancer. Mohs surgery allows for the removal of skin cancer with a very narrow surgical margin, which means there are very few tumour-free cells surrounding the cancer removed along with the affected cells.Go to Treatment
