The area around the first premolar tooth at the lower left jawbone is swollen.
The patient is experiencing pain, and the swollen area has a bleeding tendency.
A biopsy led us to a diagnosis of osteosarcoma.
At the moment we are waiting to perform a CT scan.
Do you think we should perform an operation (lower jawbone resection)?
I believe osteosarcoma in the extremities are generally treated for pain management and not to gain a longer lifespan. What is the mindset for osteosarcoma in the lower jaw?
Please give me some advice.
