Procedure Coming Up

A squamous-cell carcinoma appeared really quickly on my shoulder - within weeks a tiny itchy red spot turned shiny white and bled quite easily.  Doc removed it for biopsy 6 weeks ago and I had two stitches removed which I had to do myself!  Doc called to say it was squamous-cell carcinoma and she "thinks" she got it all during the biopsy but none the less she has scheduled me for a "procedure" in a couple of weeks.  My question is, will I need more cutting and what kind of follow up do I need?  My health insurance runs out mid July so this is very worrisome.  A friend of mine who gets basel cell type frequently told me that squamous-cell carcinoma is more dangerous although it is not the melanoma that kills.  Yikes! ???
