SCC Upper eyelid – Requiring Mohs
SCC upper eyelid – This man came in this week, with a history of a lesion on his right upper eyelid that had recently grown rapidly.
This is a squamous cell carcinoma, and it is a very dangerous lesion. It can spread along nerves into the orbit and brain, as well as metastasize elsewhere.
I have arranged for priority Mohs micrographic surgical excision followed by reconstruction in the next fortnight at the Skin Hospital.
These can be misdiagnosed as a seborrheic keratosis….Beware!
Wherever possible, my patients undergo Mohs surgery to remove non-pigmented skin cancers.
