I now have the dubious distinction of having had all three main types of skin cancer; melanoma (nodular), basal cell and most currently, squamous. My dermatologist treated it with 2 cryosurgeries which were unsuccessful. Then, for 2 months, I applied Solaraze. That, too, was unsuccessful so she has retreated to rxing Aldara. I know it is not indicted for squamous and am wondering if I am wasting more time and should ust go ahead and have the Mohs on my nose. Is trying Aldara for squamous worth trying for the next 3 months?
