Squamous cell carcinoma on lip

Hi all. I have recently recieved my biospy results in a lesión on my bottom lip. Squamous cell carcinoma... I've had it a year, but after 7 visits to doctors, who just prescribed cream after cream. I went private for a biodoy. I'm now back on the social security with surgery planned for Saturday. I'm told its a quick procedure taking it out. However I've no idea what to expect, anyone has similar?

  1. It sounds like you have really had to advocate for yourself. I am so sorry it has taken so long to get some real relief.


    I haven't had surgery on my lip, but I did have a squamous cell removed from my collarbone this year. It was a much easier procedure than I anticipated and healing moved very quickly. I am hoping your experience is similar.


    I am including a few articles you might find helpful.
