Hi, I'm Marcel. I have Squamous Cell Carcinoma. Luckily, my doctor detected it in an early. So, lets go through my options.
Marcel, I've explored your options and I think the best option is Mohs Micrographic Surgery.
Using a scalpel, I will remove the visible tumor with a very thin layer of tissue around it. This layer is sectioned, frozen, stained, and checked under a microscope thoroughly to determine if it is cancerous.
Unfortunately, cancer cells were present in that tissue. Therefore, we must repeat this procedure until the last layer viewed under the microscope is cancer free.
After the next procedure...
Good news! After the last procedure, no more cancer cells were found in the removed tissue. You're cancer free!
Mohs Micrographic Surgery cured my cancer before it spread to local lymph nodes and other organs. I am so happy we caught it in the early stages.
