Basal Cell carcinoma

Hello ladies. Well, in september i had i biopsy done and it came back positive for basal cell carcinoma.  Very blessed it was just that. Well, i had the procedure done early October and afterward recieved a letter saying they removed all cancer cells from the area.  Well, my scar area has recently developed a bump on it.  I dont remember the bump being there (the scar is right below my right eye) and I am paranoid that it could be another cancerous bump.  But it could just be part of the scar?  Do you think i should call the dermetoligist again to get it checked out?

One of mine that was removed with MOHS seems to have new growth, go back to your dermatologist and get it looked at.

Did they do a PET scan to make sure they got it all or did they just assume they got it all?

They did another biopsy after the procedure and said they took out all the cancer cells... i had my 6 month checkup and all is well, i just have to keep going in once a year for checkups! =)
