What is Carcinoma?
Carcinoma is a cancer tissue developed from epithelial cells, whose genome has been damaged or deformed, causing cells to show malevolent properties. It grows in soft skin cells or the tissues which line the inner or outer surface of the human body such as liver or kidneys.
Squamous cell carcinoma
It is a type of skin cancer, also found in soft lining of certain organs of the human body, digestive tract and respiratory tract. Carcinoma has been derived from the skin, sometimes seen on areas which are exposed to the direct sunlight such as the face, ears, neck, lips, the back side of the hands etc.
Verrucous Carcinoma (VC)
It is a common type of squamous cell carcinoma. This is usually found in people have the habit of chewing tobacco or using snuff orally. Verrucous carcinoma is otherwise called as ‘snuff dipper’s cancer.’ The victims of verrucous carcinoma have a good prognosis.
Here are some treatment images of Mr.Thanu (name changed), 57, with tumour at the oral commissure reported some two years back at Jerush dental and facial corrective centre, Thuckalay. This fully recovered happy patient used to visit us for periodic check-ups with much gratitude. It is satisfying while we see these kinds of happy patients. It induces us to excel further professionally to accumulate more such smiles to see.
