ENT Specialist 's  Response
Hi, an ENT trained in head and neck cancer surgery will be a suitable person to excise this type of lesion. The margins taken for such type of excisions is very important and histopathology post excision should not only tell us about the margins all around but also the base which all should be tumour free. Many a times the defect so created is large, there is need for a reconstructive surgeon. Regards
