ABSTRACT
The tasks of a primary health care physician include not only the prevention of diseases, but also the quick and efficient diagnosing of already existing pathological conditions, which, if not treated, may develop into a serious clinical problem. Cancer prevention is among these tasks. Chelitis may be the starting point for cancerous transformation. Cancer of the lower lip, often developing on the background of recurrent inflammation, chelitis constitutes nearly 80% of the types of cancer occurring in the oral cavity. The objective of the study was drawing PHC physicians’ attention to this problem, by describing the case of a patient with chelitis, in whom, after excision of the non-healing wound, a pre-cancerous condition was histopathologically diagnosed. Chronic conditions which do not produce complaints, are also disregarded, both by patients and physicians, including dentists.
