    I have seen a dermatologist and he has diagnosed me with basal cell skin cancer on my back. It has been there over a year and is about 6cm large. He didn’t do a biopsy but said he can tell by looking at it. It needs to be surgically removed which he wants to do under local aneasthetic and do a skin graft at the same time. He said I would need a lot of local aneasthetic because of the size of the area. I am nervous about it and would prefer to have it done under general aneasthetic. Has anyone else had this surgery?
