If You Have Had Skin Cancer, You Are at a Higher Risk of Developing a New Form of Skin Cancer

Published on June 4, 2018

Mohs surgery is recognized as one of the most effective skin cancer treatments available. It has a 97% to 99% chance of curing most common types of skin cancers, which is the highest cure rate for any skin cancer treatment.

One thing you should be aware of is that even if you do cure your skin cancer through Mohs surgery, you can still develop skin cancer again. This does not mean that the skin cancer you had treated will recur. Individuals who have had skin cancer simply have a higher risk of developing new skin cancers that are unrelated to the one they had treated.
