Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
the skin cancer could have been too deep and the moh's surgery may have needed to cut too deep to be able to save the cartilage to be able to restore your ear.
was the moh's surgery very deep?
I am a cancer doctor
that is why I prefer radiation therapy for skin cancers on the ear. there is no surgery needed and the radiation kills the skin cancer and leaves the ear structure alone for better cosmetic results.
