Abstract

This retrospective study was carry out to asses the clinical outcome of T1 and T2 squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lower lip and verify the impact of some clinical parameters on prognosis. Among a series of 121 tumors of the lips, 87 were located in the lower lip, 32 in the upper lip and 2 in the labial commissure. Ninety-five (78.5%) had resection followed by primay closure, 21 (17.4) had resection combined with local flap and 5 (4.1) were biopsies. Fifty-three patients with histological proven SCC of the lip. There were 39 T1 and 14 T2. Since no tumor had N and/or M the stage was the same. None had positive neck nodes (N0) and neck dissection was not performed. There were 22 grading 1 (i.e. G1), 20 G2 and 3 G3. Eight cases of grading were missed. Eight patients (5 SCC) had local relapsed which were treated with a second resection. Chi square text was used to detect the variables (i.e. grading, site, stage, type of surgery) statistically associated with the 5 cases of SCC which had local relapse. None of the studied variables was statistically correlated with local relapse. Radical tumor resection is a viable procedure for T1 and T2 SCC lower lip. In addition a second surgery on primary tumor location is possible
