Has anyone had any experience having a squamous cell carcinoma removed from their nose?

I have just been diagnosed with quite a large one on the tip of my nose and just don’t know what to expect.

  1. Hi

    1. Thanks Sidney, much appreciated.

      1. Hi

    2. I had an aggressive squamous cell carcinoma on the side of my nose. There was still some left after the Mohs surgery so I then had an ENT surgeon take the rest of it out. I ended up with a forehead flap graft. I will be starting radiation treatment soon. Hopefully yours won’t be this involved. I am doing well and thankful that there is no cancer left!

      1. I had it taken off my nose yes . I had a plastic surgeon do my face because there were three places . It is gone for now hopefully NO more . I had it seven different times . Radiation on both my legs for a month

        1. Thank you for your reply. Glad to hear that your cancer has gone for now and fingers crossed for you as that’s a lot of times to have had it.
          I have an appointment for surgery on 6th August, with a plastic surgeon who has said that I will have a dent and need a skin graft, so hoping it doesn’t grow too much more between now and then.
