cancer: “Do I need a Mohs surgeon?“ Skin cancer is the
most common and rapidly increasing form of cancer.
Exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun and indoor
tanning devices is the most preventable risk factor for
skin cancer. Skin cancer is not necessarily life threatening
or disfiguring. Effective skin cancer treatments are
available, and in many cases Mohs Micrographic Surgery
is the treatment of choice. Mohs Surgery is a state-of-
the-art skin cancer treatment that, when performed by
a fellowship-trained member of the American College of
Mohs Surgery, offers the highest cure rate. The physician
serves as surgeon, pathologist and reconstructive surgeon.
The physician is able to use a microscope to see beyond
the visible disease and to precisely identify and surgically
remove the entire tumor, leaving healthy tissue intact
and unharmed. This also ensures that the Mohs surgeon
will be able to better repair the incision and minimize
scarring. Mohs surgery is most commonly used for basal
and squamous cell carcinomas. It should be the treatment
of choice when: the cancer is large; the edges of the
cancer cannot be defined; the cancer is in an area where it
is important to preserve healthy tissue for the functional
and cosmetic results; the cancer is likely to recur if
treated another way; and prior treatment has failed.
Dr. T.J. Giuffrida is the Director of the
Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center in Coral
Gables. He is a Board Certified Dermatologist
and one of a few fellowship-trained Mohs
surgeons in South Florida. He specializes in the
diagnosis and treatment of skin cancer and
offers Mohs Surgery for the treatment of skin
cancers. For more, contact 305.461.2000 or

20 Oh, Chocolate!
Think you’re king of the gym?

who recently set the world record
for the most push-ups completed
in an hour, with 1,940. Feel like a
wuss yet? We sure do.
That Valentine’s Day box of chocolates
have you worrying about your skin?
Quit brooding and dig in. According
to skin care experts, chocolate is in
no way related to breakouts. It might,
however, increase your pant size.
All you lefties who have heard you’re
going to drop dead nine years before your

controversial 1980 study have since been
disproved. Better start saving for those
extra years of retirement!
