Answer

In 2015, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) released consensus guidelines for the treatment of basal cell carcinomas that recommended MMS as the treatment of choice for high-risk BCCs and for those in cosmetically sensitive locations. The guidelines also noted that MMS offers complete tumor margin analysis while other surgical options do not. [109]
