Waiting Too Long for Squamous Cell on Chest?

Last updated: February 2023

I was diagnosed with squamous cell cancer after 1st biopsy in August 2019. Then I had second biopsy at the end of August because it came back. I have been waiting until Nov, 26 to have surgery. It has grown thicker and hurts when you touch it and hurts during movement. The dermatologist is doing the surgery not Mohs. I am worried because he wanted to wait until Dec to have surgery but I insisted for November. Do you think it has spread? He didn’t seem concerned.
