  • Mendenhall WM, Stringer SP, Cassisi NJ, et al (Univ of Florida, Gainesville)

    Squamous Cell Carcinoma of the Nasal Vestibule

    Head Neck 21: 385-393, 1999

      

    Sixty patients were evaluated. 56 underwent Radiotherapy alone and 4 patients underwent surgery after RT.

      

    Radiotherapy offers a high cure rate with good cosmesis. T4 extensive tumours have an improveed chance of cure with radiation and surgery, though they have more complications.

      

    The vestibular cancers should not be confused with nasal cavity tumours which are more biological aggressive. Nasal vestibular cancers are more like skin cancer.
