Hi my 82 year old dad, healthy in general, went to gp this morning to check out something above his upper lip. Gp said its a carcinome and he needs to cut it out as soon as possible. This thing the size of a small pea and on photos taken on Christmas day 2012 we checked and couldn''t see anything. Is it okay if the gp with some 33 years experience remove it in his rooms?

Yes, it is in order to remove it in his rooms. The excised tissue will be send away to have a histological diagnosis made. The report will also tell if the GP was successful in removing the entire lesion. If the lesion is removed entirely, there is nothing to worry about. If this is not the case, the GP will advise on the next step of treatment.
