I am scheduled for Mohs surgery to remove skin cancer on my forehead. I am doing as much research as I can at this point and wondered if anyone here has ever had this procedure done or knows anything about it.

My dermatologist scraped (with local anesthesia) some of my spot and biopsied that which found it was pigmented basal cell carcinoma. Then he scheduled me for the mohs surgery.
6yrs ago he used a punch to remove a deep chunk of skin on my arm with a suspicious mole.
btw, did you have a consultation with the mohs surgeon or did you just go in that day?
Thank you for sharing
