Answer

Excisional biopsy is the treatment of choice for conjunctival SCC. For extremely large lesions, incisional biopsy may be performed. However, strict notation of the biopsy site and minimal handling of the surrounding tissues are imperative to prevent seeding of the tumor. Surgical excision is best performed under the operating microscope.
