Skin Cancer on Lower Lip

I was just told that I have skin cancer on the lower lip. they did not indicate what type, but sent me to a surgeon. I have an appointment for consultation. Since this is on the lip, do I have any risk of the cancer being spread since I have probably injested the skin from the lip? I don't understand the situation completely and with holidays, a little concerned about inablility to contact the doctors.

Hi and welcome,

Let us know what the doc says. I'm not sure the cancer is spread that way and I apologize for having no expert on this community. Best of luck and health to you and please let us know how things are going.
