My father, age 91, has a squamous cell carcinoma underneath the inner corner of his right eye. He has seen an Oculoplastic Surgeon, who is recommending incision of the tumor, and then reconstructive surgery. This is a lot to put him through, so I wondered how quickly does this type of cancer grow? His overall health is not too bad, so he will probably live several more years. Is this "torture" worth doing at his age?
