How do I manage my verrucous carcinoma on a daily basis?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Managing your verrucous carcinoma on a daily basis begins with treatment. Treatment often involves surgery to remove the tumor, and sometimes may involve radiation therapy. Once you've been treated, it's important to check in with your doctor regularly to make sure the cancer hasn't come back. Taking care of your overall physical health is important for the recovery process, so eat a balanced diet and get plenty of rest. Also, be sure to avoid chewing or smoking tobacco, since it's a significant risk factor for this cancer. Dealing with verrucous carcinoma can cause emotional stress, so take care of your emotional health by relying on resources like social workers, support groups, and friends and family.
