ABSTRACT

Mohs' paste (MP) is sometimes useful for improving the quality of life of patients experiencing bleeding, exudate, or infection-related bad odor caused by metastatic skin tumors. We report two cases involving bleeding due to a metastatic skin tumor from lung cancer that were controlled using MP. The patients were then treated with radiation therapy and chemotherapy. There is no similar case report related to lung cancer to date. In cases involving massive bleeding due to metastatic skin tumors, treatment with MP is considered to be a treatment option in the continuing multidisciplinary treatment of lung cancer.
