Hi,
I'm having mohs thursday on the bridge of my nose. It's squamous cell and has been there for three years or more. I'm not afraid of surgery or the scar . I'm worried that it's spread. Does anyone know how long it takes to spread, all replies would be appreciated.

Hi,
If I'm reading this correctly, you already had your surgery and hopefully it took care of everything. I think the key going forward is to keep an eye on your skin and go back for regular check-ups. Your doctor might tell you to go back in a year but it might not be a bad idea to go back more frequently. That's what I have been doing and it helps catch things early. Best of luck to you!
