Mohs surgery for skin cancer

Mohs micrographic surgery (MMS) is a specialist surgical procedure to remove skin cancer. It aims to remove all of the cancerous tissue while keeping as much healthy skin intact as possible. This helps to minimise scarring, and is useful in areas of the skin such as near the eyes, where minimal skin removal is required.

Mohs surgery has been refined into the most precise and advanced treatment for skin cancer, It has the lowest recurrence rates, highest cure rates and best cosmetic results of any skin cancer treatment (Skin Cancer UK)

Mohs surgery is so effective because it evaluates the tissue surrounding the cancer more thoroughly than traditional skin cancer surgery techniques.

How does Mohs surgery work?

Mohs surgery is carried out by a surgeon who is able to remove cancerous tissue, analyse the removed tissue in the lab during the procedure, and finally close up the wound.

The procedure will be done during a single visit. You will have a local anaesthetic injected to numb the area completely. During the surgery, your surgeon removes a very thin layer of tissue at a time. They then look at each layer under a microscope, to determine where the cancer is. From this, they know exactly where to take the next layer from. This continues until no cancerous skin cells remain.

By doing it in stages like this, your surgeon can ensure they remove as little healthy skin tissue as possible, reducing any scarring. Depending on the size of the wound, it may be left open to heal or closed up with stitches. The whole process can take several hours depending on how many layers need to be removed.
