Surgery Rates Rising for Non-Melanoma Skin Cancer: Study
Date:4/16/2012

e largest proportion of non-melanoma skin cancer patients treated with the Mohs procedure -- about 45 percent -- and a larger proportion were performed in younger patients, the study found.

"Patient age and lesion location were significantly associated with the type of surgery (Mohs micrographic surgery versus surgical excision), yet there were wide variations in regional [Mohs procedure] use and geographical disparity that warrant further investigation. Additional large, prospective studies are needed to further identify surgical treatment outcomes for non-melanoma skin cancer," the authors concluded.
