What are the treatment options for verrucous carcinoma?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Treatment options for verrucous carcinoma may depend on the location of the tumor, but they usually begin with surgery. During surgery, doctors will remove the entire tumor and a bit of the surrounding tissue. This can sometimes be a challenging procedure, depending on the location of the tumor. After surgery, doctors may recommend another type of treatment - usually radiation therapy - to kill any remaining cancerous cells. Sometimes, if surgery is too difficult, radiation therapy may be used alone. Talk to your doctor to determine the best treatment method for you.
