My patient just got back from having half his tongue removed and 6 weeks of intense radiation therapy due to squamous cell carcinoma. Results are not so pretty.

PSA: Don't smoke
What does this have to do with smoking?
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

Me too.  I became a lawyer so that I can oppose other lawyers every day. You only get to do so once in a while.

Try one more time.
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0001832/#adam_000829.disease.causes

  I wasn't going to take your obvious bait to rile me up, but I cherish human life too much to ignore you.
 
 Smoking is a known risk factor in oral SCC. (Try google-ing oral squamous cell carcinoma this time.) Itís compounded when alcohol is introduced. Your attempted "proof" to the contrary is laughable. First off, the list is not necessarily all-inclusive. Second, and more importantly, it is talking about SCC of the skin. So unless people start smoking through their skin, that website is irrelevant.

Unfortunately for my patient that's not true. He skipped his six month checkup so it was caught 6 months later than that.  Perhaps if he came earlier he could have had a relatively simple excision. By the time of surgery it was already in nervous tissue and once that happened he needed much more aggressive surgery and radiation.

Indeed, I believe skin cancer is the only cancer that is cannot be cause by smoking.

Now that you need to go outside into the sun to smoke......
Just because things turned out a certain way doesn't mean you were right.
