Treat oral cavity tumours effectively and safely at Geoplasty Plastic Surgery. We examine your problem in detail, determine if it is benign or malignant, and ensure precise removal of the tumour, aiming at functional or aesthetic restoration of the area.
What oral cavity tumours are
The oral cavity may manifest all types of tumours, benign and malignant.
Malignant oral cavity tumours are common types of cancer mainly caused, separately but mainly combined, by:
- Human papillomavirus (HPV).
Approximately 90% of oral cavity tumours relate to squamous cell carcinomas (SCC). They are more common after 40 for both men and women.
They may affect vital functions, such as breathing, eating, swallowing and speaking.
If not treated early, the squamous cell carcinomas of the oral cavity may have serious implications on the life of patients, especially when extensive surgical removal is required.
How oral cavity tumours are treated
Benign oral cavity tumours are treated with a simple surgical excision, without any further treatment required.
The removal of malignant oral cavity tumours is performed under general anaesthesia.
A specialised medical team, experienced in reconstructive plastic surgery, has to undertake the treatment of particularly aggressive neoplasms. The main reason is that the treatment approach is multi-faceted and requires:
- Accurate diagnosis via biopsy.
- Determination of the extent of the disease and identification of its stage via lab and imaging scans.
- Surgical excision of the tumour.
- Cervical lymph node dissection.
- Restoration of the functionality, aesthetics and appearance of the area.
- Radiotherapy and/or chemotherapy, with the aim of eradicating the tumour.
In case of extended damage, special microsurgery techniques may be required to treat possible deficits. These include transfer of tissue (flaps) from one part of the body to another.
