Hi, folks. A good friend of mine has been diagnosed with the lip tumor. A doctor recommends surgery, but it seems that this is not enough. He recommends post operative therapy. I really don’t know if this is required in those cases. Can someone tell me something more? Thank you in advance.

Hi, there. It all depends of the stage of the cancer. Usually, if it is only present in epithelium and does not invade basal membrane, only surgery is enough. However, if it has spread, then some additional treatment options are needed. Radiotherapy uses X rays of high energy. Chemotherapy can also be used. You should consult an expert for more details. I guess your friend has advanced lip cancer since his doctor wants post operative therapy. I hope everything will be all right. Bye!
