Diagnosis. It is uncommon under thirty, quite common after.
Epithelioma of the lower lip is limited almost entirely to men. If, then,

a man of from forty to seventy develops a small tumor in the lower lip

which ulcerates early, it is likely to be the cancer. The same applies to

some extent to the tongue. These growths and sores need attention early.

Treatment. The best treatment is early free removal of the entire growth

before the glands are involved.
