A 78-year-old gentleman presented with a slowing growing “pimple” on his left forehead that recently began to bleed. A skin biopsy revealed basal cell carcinoma skin cancer that was successfully treated with Mohs micrographic surgery. Mohs surgery had the advantage of keeping the wound as shallow as possible, and it was allowed to heal naturally without stitches. This allowed him to continue his daily golfing with friends. Just 6 weeks after surgery, his skin has healed well, leaving almost no evidence of the basal cell carcinoma skin cancer.
