Mum was diagnosed with scc 5 years ago and had a rhinectomy. Was good for a few years but has now been experiencing occasional bleeds with no pain or lumps. Last bleed happened 30 mins ago. It wasn’t constant and was cleaned up quickly.Took 2 tissues to dry it completely. Been to see oncologist numerous amounts of times who says there is nothing to worry about. Am worried in case her stitches are going to burst. Is this familiar to anyone who’s been in this position?
Hi amuawad , I don't really know anything about rhinectomies so cannot really comment . I once had a wound that kept bleeding so they quarterized it but not sure if they can do it if stitches are still in . Sorry I cannot give more information , all the best ,take care .
