Check out these exposed tendons!
This patient underwent a surgical excision of a squamous cell carcinoma on the dorsum or back of his hand.
The picture was taken prior a skin graft was placed on the affected area!
Squamous cell carcinomas are enlarging red bumps, sometimes with a rough, scaly, or crusted surface. They may also look like flat reddish patches in the skin that grow slowly. If untreated, they can become ulcerated (open sores). They appear on sun-exposed areas such as the head, neck, ears, lips, back of the hands and forearms.
Although rare, if it does metastasize, it commonly travels to the local lymph nodes.
Surgical excision with a free margin of healthy tissue is the most beneficial treatment option, which explains why this patient had such a big area removed.
