Massive tomor resection (squamous cell carcinoma) with mandibulectomy, neck dissection and laryngectomy!

The patients jaw was reconstructed using fibular bone graft and musculocutaneous flap coverage. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common form of skin cancer, characterized by abnormal, accelerated growth of squamous cells. While the majority of SCCs can be easily and successfully treated, if allowed to grow, these lesions can become disfiguring, dangerous and even deadly. Untreated SCCs can become invasive, grow into deeper layers of skin and spread to other parts of the body.
