Is there a cure for verrucous carcinoma?

There is no guaranteed cure for verrucous carcinoma, but in most cases, treatment is very successful. The most effective treatment is usually surgery to remove the tumor and some nearby tissue. Sometimes, radiation therapy may be used to kill remaining cancerous cells. With this combination, verrucous carcinoma may be completely removed from the body. Talk to your doctor to determine the most effective treatment options for you.
