Carcinoma of Anterior Two Third of the Tongue: A Case Report
Carcinoma of the tongue is the one of the most commonly occurring neoplasm among all intraoral malignant tumors, accounting for about 30% of all the oral malignancies.Because of a higher risk of nodal metastasis with tongue carcinoma, for patients undergoing a surgical resection of primary tumors, it is advised to perform elective supraomohyoid neck dissection. However, treatment of the N0 neck is still debated. This paper reports a case of a squamous cell carcinoma located at the anterior two third of the tongue, treated by surgical excision of the primary site along with supraomohyoid neck dissection. Follow up of the patient supports that prophylactic neck dissection should be considered with the aim of improving regional control.
