You’re looking at an interactive case study from Prognosis: Your Diagnosis (one of four distinct learning formats available in Clinical Odyssey). Try it out, and have fun improving your clinical skills.
A 57 year old Caucasian man presents with pain and bleeding from a slowly enlarging lump on his upper lip, which first appeared 1 month ago.
His sister was diagnosed with colonic cancer at the age of 30, his mother with uterine cancer at age 38, and his paternal grandfather with cancer of the bladder (age unknown).
He smokes regularly, with a pack history of 10 years. His job requires him to be exposed to sunlight for around 5 to 6 hours per day.
