Need a Doctor Recommendation. My 13 Year Old Son Needs Scalp Surgery to Close a Wound from a Cancer Surgery?
Silver dollar size wound is from a surgery on Jul 3 to remove a cancer tumor, which was under the scalp but outside of the skull. The plastic surgeon who performed the procedure believed there was only a single tumor to be removed (only one detected on the scans) and believed he could obtain clear margins and still sew the scalp up and have it heal. However, he found a second and more scalp was taken than planned. Son is in chemo and will also need proton radiation therapy. Who can recommend Doc
