So had some moles removed, because they were itchy.
One of them came back from the lab cancerous.
So I had  the operation to removed the cells and "clear" the margins. Yay! They got it all on the first cut.. so that was great.
The nurse didn't check my body positioning (she to busy staring at my boobs... cause I was topless) She reminded me of me .. totally Shameless, it was hot. When the doc left the room, she asked me if I was okay. And while bandaging me.. told me my GF was a lucky lady. Yes.. yes she is.. cause this time around...Im pretty loyal and RAD.
Anyway  this nurse didn't check my positioning very well while doc was cutting. And when he cauterized a few vessels.. my hand was touching the metal frame of the surgical table..thus grounding me. Its not the first time Ive been "shocked" but wow.. it didn't feel good. And it was funny and painful to watch my pinky and ring finger curl up like they had rigamortious.. lol!

Anyway.. I think I have A LOT of scars.. C sections, heart surgery, multiple abdominal surgeries, the lists goes on.. and even though people say they don't care when I am naked.. I know they see them.  But it doesn't bother me too much, one reason is  because they are flat. Even though  my scars are large and noticeable.. they lay flat on my skin.

This one .. does not. its only 2 inches across the top of my shoulder...( I wear a lot of tank tops) but its raised.. and purple and looks like someone spread scar tissue like peanut butter... across my shoulder. IM wondering if this is because the cells were cancerous? and mutated? And if so.. would I have become the HULK? ( yes!)
IM happy to have the cancer removed.. and not super vain.
I just wanted to let others know... if they have the Mohs procedure.. the scarring may look different than other ones.

Thanks for the advice here. I've had a few BCC's removed from my face etc but nothing too bad yet.  I'm not sure on what Mohs procedure is but I'll look that up.  There's alot of skin cancer here in Australia as we are a hot country.  I'm guessing it's the way in which it was cut is maybe why it's raised..... not sure tho. The colour will fade in time to. I'm interested if anyone knows more on this to.

I've had BCCs and scars from them too. I think the surgeons all have their own styles, too. Mine thinks about long term for visible scars, so maybe one that is raised for a couple of years will settle down as the skin relaxes and then be smaller or shorter than one that is initially flatter immediately after the procedure. That happened to me. Big lump as well as scar for a couple of years, and then it smoothed out beautifully. Sometimes when they do the initial biopsy, if they are sure it is a BCC from their knowledge of you and the disease, they can do the biopsy large enough that they get it all with clear margins the first time and you will be lucky.
