Case discussion: How would you treat this patient? [21 February]
In this week’s case discussion, we revisit a fascinating case submitted in 2020 by Dr Alex Speight. A 39-year-old man came to Dr Speight’s practice as a new patient. He had seen a doctor elsewhere in May 2019 for a small lip lesion which was not healing.
According to the patient, the doctor biopsied the lesion and then offered cryotherapy. The patient declined and did not see the doctor again. The lesion has since grown. The patient says he has since seen two doctors who did not suggest doing anything. Dr Speight found the original biopsy result:
This is what the lesion looks like now. What is going on here? What would you do? How do you interpret this biopsy?
Here is the pathology result. What next?
