PMID:  7287447     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Carcinoma of the lip arises in the strip of exposed mucosa between the mucocutaneous junction and the point of contact of the lips. Removal of the entire area at risk usually prevents recurrence or the development of a second primary tumor. A classification of lower lip involvement is presented, the various modes of treatment are reviewed, and surgical techniques for providing a pouting lower lip vermilion are described.
