Squamous cell cancer
I just got biopsy results that a spot on my face is squamous cell cancer. They told me it’s in situ and did not grade it as any stage of cancer.
They recommend MOHS surgery and plastics – a plastic surgeon to close it to minimize scarring since it’s on my face – the lower right cheek. At this point I can’t get an appointment until June 4.
I’m terrified having lost someone to melanoma last year! They assure me it’s testable but I’m worried! Should I seek another opinion – is this the best course of action – can I afford to wait that long, and Do I lose more time by going somewhere else? Can they use the biopsy results or will they need the tissue, probably causing a delay.
