Abstrakt

The primary objective of any therapeutic intervention is always patient cure. The potential malignancy of any tumour depends on both its locally destructive nature and the metastatic and fatal potential. The choice of treatment however depends on a number of unique variables such as expected cure rate, available treatments, patient factors, etc. The most important decision to be made for the choice of treatment is whether the lesion is malignant or benign. Usually, this decision is reached after the examination of a biopsy: If the lesion is small and easily excisable, the excisional biopsy is preferred. This confers advantages in the way of offering an immediate potential cure, usually acceptable cosmesis and low cost in reducing the number of patient visits.
