Squamous cell carcinoma completely removed. This one approx 18 months visible on surface.

  • If you see anything like this, earlier detection is always best. Don't leave it.

Thinking that something will go away and waiting for it to go away is a huge risk. Seek diagnosis asap.

Surgery was quick and painless.

Recovery not too slow with focus on liquified raw foods. Follow up tests.

Can eat soft foods. Dissolvable stitches have dissolved. Still some difficulties talking smiling laughing but told skin will stretch. Scan in a few weeks to see if scc has spread.

Used bio oil many times a day massaged in. Followed by a thin layer of silicone gel. When that dried, a microphone tape. Still wear micropore tape to keep sun off it and also hat.

A bit of numbness still at site near lip. As there were cancer cells on the margin of excision in pathology results of excision and lymphatic system evidence of cancer cells in the pathology results, surgeon has now suggested radiotherapy as a precaution on the lip.

It was otherwise all clear in the results of pathology and on the full body PET scan results some activity at site of surgery which they said was expected after surgery. But otherwise all clear,
