Should I be concerned for CT scan after mohs surgery?

I just had Mohs surgery to remove a sebaceous skin cancer from an area next to my ear.
I've been told I need to have a CT scan from my head to my pelvic region to check if it has metastized. Also, a
mammogram and colonoscopy. This area was very small and taken by a dermatologist. Should I be alarmed?

As long as surgery was done with a good resection margin, and histologically the resection margins were adequate and free without invasion of vessels you need not worry and you can according to me withhold other investigations.
