What is Bowen’s Disease?
It is an early stage of skin cancer.
It appears as scaly and erythematous patch, often about 1 cm or more in diameter.
What are the symptoms of Bowen’s Disease?
- Plaque located on or within the skin
A typical clinical history is presentation of non-steroid-responsive dermatosis.
How is Bowen’s Disease diagnosed?
Bowen’s Disease can be confused with the other common skin disorders, such as psoriasis, Paget’s disease of the breast and malignant melanoma. A medical history, physical examination, and biopsy establish the diagnosis.
What causes Bowen’s Disease?
Sun exposure in some cases (ultraviolet radiation). Lesions in non-sun-exposed areas are often of uncertain etiology, but some are due to papilloma virus infection or arsenic ingestion.
How is it treated?
There are various means of treating Bowen’s Disease. These include:
- Open sore that bleeds and crusts and persists for weeks
- Wart-like growth that crusts and occasionally bleeds
- Surgical removal
What is the estimated cost of treatment?
The treatment cost is dependent upon the type of treatment chosen. Each treatment modality has its own merits & demerits. Selecting the best therapeutic approach includes a proper assessment of the size of the lesion, site, number, severity of functional impairment, etc. In general, a consultation with Dr. Rinky Kapoor would cost about INR 1000/-. Since most treatments have a risk of recurrence, follow-up at 6 months – 1 year is recommended to find the cause for recurrence.
What is the prognosis?
All treatment options have a recurrence rate of 5 to 10%, and no treatment modality seems superior for all clinical situations.
