Answer

Most cases of cSCC are easily and successfully treated by dermatologists or Mohs surgeons. In certain cases, however, such as the following, a multidisciplinary approach may be needed:

  • Large or deep tumors in which excision and reconstruction under local anesthesia is not feasible

  • Surgical margins that are not clear or are in doubt

  • Nodal or distant metastasis
