Frequently Asked Questions

What is an excision?

Excision defined: 'the act or procedure of removing by or as if by cutting out; especially surgical removal or resection.'

A skin excision is a minor surgical procedure where a lesion is removed for the purpose of biopsy (to analyze the cells using a microscope and staining to determine if there is atypia), or to completely remove with a standard margin. 

What is Mohs?

Mohs (named after Dr. Mohs) surgery is an excision method or technique which accomplishes two main goals: clear margins and normal skin preservation. The procedure used to treat skin cancer. This surgery involves cutting away thin layers of skin. Each thin layer is looked at closely for signs of cancer. The process keeps going until there are no signs of cancer.

The goal of Mohs surgery is to remove all of the skin cancer without hurting the healthy skin around it. Mohs surgery allows the surgeon to be sure that all the cancer is gone. This makes it more likely that the cancer is cured. It reduces the need for other treatments or more surgery.

During Mohs surgery, medicine to numb the area is usually given so that you don't feel pain. Most people can go home after surgery and don't need to stay in a hospital.

Mohs surgery is also called Mohs micrographic surgery.
