Description: Discussion: - squamous cell carcinoma: this tumor in the hand requires aggressive treatment (usually amputation); - is the most frequent primary malignancy of the hand; - recurrence rates are high (22%), and therefore radical surgical resection is recommended; - most cases of recurrence (67%) are associated w/ metastatic spread; - therefore lymphadenectomy is recommended, eventhough lymph nodes may or may not be palpated;
