For melanoma up to stage 2, doctors often recommend a wide excision. This type of surgery is sometimes used for basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma, however, Moh’s surgery is sometimes recommended for those types as there is a higher cure rate although excision has a success rate of around 90 percent.

The removed tissue is sent to a laboratory for testing. The surrounding tissue is tested as well. If cancer is found in the outermost points, your doctor may recommend further treatment.

This change reflects the fact that daily consumption of acetaminophen should not exceed 3000 mg in a 24 hour period of time. Additionally, the label will be changed from saying "do not take more than eight c...
