Side Effects and Warnings

#Possible Complications of Mohs Surgery

Complications are rare, but no procedure is completely free of risk. If you are planning to have Mohs surgery, your doctor will review a list of possible complications, which may include:

  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Reaction to the local anesthesia
  • Infection
  • Damage to nerve endings (temporary or permanent numbness or weakness)
  • Itching or shooting-pain sensations

Be sure to discuss these risks with your doctor before the procedure.

#Call Your Doctor

After arriving home, contact your doctor if any of the following occurs:

  • Bleeding or other drainage
  • Increased pain
  • Redness, warmth, tenderness, or swelling at the incision site
  • Signs of infection, including fever and chills

If you think you have an emergency, CALL 911.
