    Smile squamous cell carcinoma

    I had small lesion biopsied last week. Came back SCC today, Friday. Dermatologist said he removed lesion and surrounding tissue for biopsy. Today, got results and doctor wants me to come back Wednesday to let him excise a little more. I am worried but feel since it is small, doctor is just being cautious.

    Hi joy100,

    That's pretty normal. The Dermatologist will remove the skin lesion as well as some of the surrounding are for a biopsy. Since it came back SCC they want to take a little more to be sure all of the cancer was removed. It will be biopsied again.

    When I had SCC the second biopsy came back negative for cancer.

    Best wishes!

    Had my procedure today. Found out my SCC was stage 1 with superficial invasion. Dr. did a wonderful job I think. Had stitches that will come out in 2 weeks. Am so thankful for the outcome of this. They said the liklehood of it coming back needing any more excision was almost 0. Will let me know in a week. Feel good tonight.
