Abstract

The objective of the review is to evaluate the effectiveness of Mohs micrographic surgery on the mortality, recurrence and quality of life of patients with nonmelanoma skin cancers when compared with other treatment modalities. Specifically, it aims to examine the effectiveness of Mohs micrographic surgery compared with other treatment modalities such as excisional surgery, curettage and electrodessication and radiation therapy, as well as nonsurgical/ chemotherapeutic interventions such as topical 5-fluorouracil and imiquimod immunotherapy in the management of nonmelanoma skin cancers.
