I am new to this site. Recently I was diagosed with Basal Cell Carcinoma (bcc) on my nose. On Oct. 17th I am scheduled for my initial consult with a MOHS surgeon. I know how MOHS surgery works from research that I have done on my own as well as material that the doctor mailed me. This will be covered by my insurance...at least I should say to an extent. I guess my question is how much does the surgery cost on average ? I know that until the procedure is actually done the doctor won't know how many times that they will have to take tissue and this will effect cost. I am definately having the procudure done....I was just curious on how much I might expect the procedure to cost. Then of course I know that it will be up to my insurance to decide what part they will pay.
Another question....how do you define a 'cancer survivor' ?
Thanks in advance for your support
