Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query The lesion must be removed with a margin of 0.5 cm. Moh`s surgery is a better approach as lt is minimal invasive. After the lesion is removed a regular follow up with surface biopsy will be required. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
