The Role of Moh’s Surgery in the Treatment of Melanoma - American Head & Neck Society

Moh’s micrographic surgery (MMS) has very high rates of local control and cure for basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. When appropriately performed, cure rates exceed 98%, especially for smaller lesions1. The role of MMS for treatment of melanoma is less clear. MMS is predicated on the use of close margins to clear disease, while preserving normal anatomy. This is contrary to the classic teaching of wide margins for clearance of melanoma....

Has anyone had to have their teeth pulled due to radiation? Will health insurance kick in on the cost due to it being caused by a medical condition? I had mine pulled but I have maxed out on my dental due to the surgery so my dental won't pay anything on my dentures.
I just finished reading the article on Neck Dissection (Published on January 21, 2016 by JJ Jackman) with much interest. In 1979-80, after around 6600 Rads of Cobalt, I underwent bi-lateral radical neck dissections. Saved my life. Unfortunately, the long-term impact has been intractable chronic pain. I had to chuckle at the single sentence given to that as a consequence; "Neck stiffness or pain." My USAF doctors were very up front with me regarding my future and the fact that I would most likely be experiencing pain on a close and personal level. I have been to 10 professional pain management clinics and until recently all have been helpful, and literally life-saving. Unfortunately, due to the opioid "epidemic," pain management seems now to have turned into something entirely different. Previously, once a person has tried everything, including stellate ganglion blocks, many drugs (including gabapentin, desyrel, elavil, va**um, etc., etc., and also a trial with a Intrathecal Catheter; being prescribed the one thing which worked was NOT seen as addictive behavior. Now I'll get to my point, finally. In 1979 an ENT Doctor saved my life. Now, 41 years later I seem to have nowhwere else to turn for answers. So, a question of your kind people. Could the procedures I underwent for treatment of nasopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma result in intractable chronic pain, with so many sources of pain as to be largely unmanagabe, or am I really just a drug seeking addict as has been "suggested?" The attached photo is what has been recommended by a Pain management clinic which shall remain unnamed.
