Book Chapter
Chapter 34 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. Among the risk factors associated with lip cancer are tobacco use, thermal injury and chronic infections. It emphasizes the goal of lip cancer management to provide long-term control of carcinoma and preserve the esthetics of perioral region in patients. It suggests that superficial parotidectomy should be included in the treatment for patients with lesions of the upper lip.
