Squamous cell carcinoma, SCC, flap, excision


Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an epithelial malignancy involving many anatomical sites and is the most common cancer capable of metastatic spread. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) can involved several different anatomic sites, including the skin, lips, mouth, esophagus, urinary tract, prostate, lungs, vagina, and cervix.Of these anatomic sites, there are four which make up the majority of SCC cases.Given the range of tissues in which it arises,morphologically characterized by proliferation of atypical, often pleomorphic squamous cells; graded as well, moderately, or poorly differentiated; well differentiated carcinomas are usually associated with keratin production and presence of intercellular bridges between adjacent cells; subtypes include basaloid, clear cell type, papillary, small cell nonkeratinizing.1 Despite advances in diagnostic methods and combined treatment modalities, the survival rate has not improved significantly over the last 30 years 2 due in part to a lack of reliable early diagnostic biomarkers and a limited number of molecularly targeted therapeutic strategies. We present a case of Squamous Cell Carcinoma on heel treated with wide excision and sural flap. After reach soft tissue healing we do the physiotherapy exercises. The timeof patient came to see help from doctor and rarity of these case that significantly improved after surgery warrant the report of the outcome.
