Hello, brand new to this forum. I had moh on a squamous spot on my lip about 2.5 years ago. I just had another precancerous spot frozen off, (along with 4 other spots on my face), and the lips aren't healing like the others. Should I give it more time or call the Dr's office back?

Squamous cell cancer (SCC), also known as squamous cell carcinoma, is a type of skin cancer that begins in the squamous cells. Squamous cells are the thin, flat cells that make up the epidermis, or the outermost layer of the skin. SCC is caused by changes in the DNA of these cells, which cause them to multiply uncontrollably.
