Lip cancer is the most frequent malignant neoplasm of the oral cavity. The study reported herewith refers to the clinicopathological features and surgical treatment of lip cancer. The most frequent tumour related to the lips is squamous cell carcinoma, with the lower lip more commonly involved than the upper lip. Typically, squamous cell carcinoma originates in the red lip, whereas basal cell carcinoma involves the white lip. The management of lip cancer involves the control not only of the primary tumours with oncologically appropriate margins and subsequent reconstruction to allow oral competence during the oral phase of swallowing, but also the possible metastatic spread to the neck. Reconstruction is a surgical challenge, especially for advanced and extended lesions.
