This condition you are suffering from is called squamous carcinoma of the face and can be cured by surgical methods.
Squamous cell carcinoma are a major group of skin cancer and grow in the epithelial cells of the skin- squamous cells. Epithelial cells comprise a major part of the skin epidermis. Squamous cells also inhabit digestive tract lining, lungs and some other parts of the body. This cancer can grow in a number of body organs, including mouth, lips, urinary bladder, vagina, lungs, prostate and esophagus. Although the cancer in these organs occur in the same kind of cells, various body sites differ in the exhibited symptoms, prognosis and treatment response to squamous cell carcinoma.
For squamous cell carcinoma surgery, excision with frozen section or Mohs reconstructive technique is used. The former procedure involves removing the cancer tissue by excision (this is then sent to histo-pathology for analysis) and subsequent freezing of the section for further processing and examination.The excised tissue is mounted on a metal disc and is rapidly frozen to -20 to -30 °C. Frozen sections require much less time to prepare than normal method of pathology staining in non-freezing conditions. The specimen is fixed in a gel like medium which freezes to the same density as the frozen tissue. After freezing, very thin sections of the tissue can be produced. A section is picked and placed on a glass slide and stained with suitable stains (e.g. the H&E stain) and is then examined under a microscope. A small fraction of tumor cells may be left out in the skin, so this procedure may require further treatment.
Mohs surgery, although requiring more time, is a more efficient method in that it gives a better analysis while ensuring minimal removal of the normal tissue. Mohs surgery is based on removal of the cancerous cells layer by layer and examination of each layer under microscope before removing next layer. The process of removal and examination is repeated until no more cancerous cells can be found. This surgery has the highest success rate and minimal chances of cancer recurrence. After the squamous cell carcinoma surgery, either the wounds are allowed to recover naturally (secondary intention wound healing) or reconstructive plastic surgery (healing by primary intent) can be performed.
Recovery time is determined by the size of skin part removed (wound), and the method of recovery. Natural wound recovery or plastic surgery needs several days to a few weeks before the wound has been fully recovered.

Squamous cell carcinoma is a subtype of skin cancer which affects the lower layers of the skin. This may result in painful lesions on the skin. Cosmetic surgery can be a tool to remove these lesions and excise the cancerous tissue, thereby treating the cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma surgery involves the removal of the cancerous lesion and reconstruction of the skin, if necessary
Any surgical procedure to treat cancer is an life-changing and important decision. If you have decided to undergo squamous carcinoma treatment, you must want to know about procedure costs. The cost of squamous cell carcinoma treatment depends upon the location of the lesion, and the type of surgery that is performed to excise the affected skin. You should make a decision regarding your surgery weighing in all factors, and not cost alone.
