This week we feature a case from Dr Alex Speight. Please read his comments on the case below:

“39 year-old man came to my 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, they biopsied it, then offered cryotherapy. The patient declined and did not see them again. The lesion has since grown. The patient said he has since reportedly seen two doctors who did not suggest doing anything.”

Below is the original biopsy result. How do you interpret this biopsy?
