The chance of developing a nonmelanoma skin cancer such as basal cell (BCC) or squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is about one in five. Caused by exposure to sunlight, they are most commonly found on the head and neck and require swift diagnosis and removal.
We are proud to offer Mohs surgery, the gold-standard for high-risk nonmelanoma skin cancers at our Burnley clinic
Mohs surgery is a precise surgical technique performed by our resident Consultant Dermatologist and fellowship-trained Mohs micrographic surgeon, Dr Arif Aslam. Done in stages, including lab work, while our patients wait, all cancerous cells are removed, while healthy tissue is left untouched, leaving the smallest possible scar.
Mohs Surgery has the lowest recurrence rates, highest cure rates and best cosmetic results of any skin cancer treatment.
