Summary:

Treatment options for malignant fungating wounds are aimed at the specific underlying cancer. Malignant wounds have a high rate of recurrence and tend to cause major alterations in patients’ physical and psychosocial well-being. Malignant wounds can result in many problems, including odor, bleeding, exudate, pruritis, and pain. Before starting treatment, healthcare professionals as a team need to determine which problems patients consider the most distressing. Even though bleeding may be more life-threatening, many patients may find the odor unbearable and may need to have it resolved first.

Objectives:

The goal of this program is to update nurses’, physical therapists’, physicians’, and radiological technologists’ knowledge of malignant wounds and ways to manage the associated physical and psychosocial problems. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe what a malignant wound is and how it develops
  • Discuss five problems associated with malignant wounds and ways to address the problems
  • Identify psychosocial concerns of patients and families with malignant wounds
