The boons of surgery are here for all of you to see and appreciate, this kind of oral cancer which is the commonest type of cancer in India..is quite among Khani and gutkha users. Lesions develop in the angle of the mouth, slowly over the years. They can extend both inside and outside of the mouth leading to difficulty in eating and poor oral hygiene. These lesions are often warty, keep growing with time and might ulcerate only to bleed. Surgery has a great role to play. It involves excision of the lesion completely followed by reconstruction of the angle of the mouth. Correct surgery is often curative and leads to an excellent cosmetic outcome. Timely diagnosis and referral are of prime importance as seen in this particular case.
