    That’s a great question. I am sorry you have had to deal with basal cell. Surgeries are never easy whether you have an excision or Mohs. I am not sure there is a typical length. I have had Mohs three times for basal cell carcinoma and my incisions varied in length with the longest being about two inches. The other two were about an inch to an inch and half. I am including a link to an article that may help you cope as you heal. Sending you healing hugs! I know recovery can be tough. We are here if you need us! April, Skincancer.net, Moderator
