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.
