I've had 3 Moh's surgeries - the 1st on my nose, the 2nd on my temple, and the 3rd on the back of my neck. The numbing shots for the surgery REALLY hurt my nose, so I was pleasantly surprised with the other two - not bad at all. I guess the 1st must have been so much worse because there's hardly any flesh over the bone on your nose. So if you have to have it, I would think your cheek would be a relatively painless place.
I've had probably a hundred precancers frozen off my face, and now have more suspicious spots popping up (blegh) although I'm never without sunscreen, and haven't been since I was 20...being very light-skinned and red-headed has its downsides for sure!
Anyway, good luck with it!
