Well-Differentiated Squamous Cell Carcinoma, Keratoacanthoma Type





A family physician's response to Dr. Sarma's review:

"I enjoyed your article on well differentiated squamous cell carcinoma , keratoacanthoma type.

Certainly as a family physician it has been vexing to me, and has depended on who was interpreting.

I have heard it differentiated according to age and other means. The dermatologists want to remove them; the surgeon , depending on how busy they are ( if busy , we're told leave it as it will regress etc... )

Yours is a wise approach and one which shows consistency."
