Tongue Cancer (Early Stages)
Cancers of the tongue present as non healing ulcers.
The most common site is the lateral border of the tongue.
These are best treated by radical tumor resection of the primary site and a staging or therapeutic neck dissection, and at advanced stage, a combination of radiotherapy and surgery.
If the defect is larger, reconstructive surgery is necessary be it a free flap or pedicled skin or myo-cutaneous flap.
