I have been diagnosed with nodular basal cell carcinoma on my right nostril - I am 37 years old. It is about 1cm in size with some redness due to scarring from where I have picked at the sore before I was diagnosed a couple weeks ago. I guess the sore has been reappearing for about 4 years. It's been recommeded that I have mohs and then reconstructive plastic surgery. The problem is I am getting married in 3.5 months and I am worried the swelling, healing, etc from surgery will still be very noticable. Should I wait to have the procedure done in December (4 months)? How much more will the bcc spread? It is barely noticable now without makeup. Looking for some advice! Thanks.
