NBE Conducts NEET SS Examinations including Surgical Superspecialities. The Examination patterns are changing and every New Year there are changes in exam pattern.

General surgery questions are asked irrespective of specialty one is preparing. Fundamentals of general surgery should be strong.

It needs a great effort on the part of a student to understand how to prepare for NEET MCH Examinations. Our experts give you insights on regular basis.

Preparing Neet Mch Head and Neck Surgery needs a good effort. Aspirants should start preparing early.


We take Example of Basal cell carcinoma which is Examiners Favourites for NEET MCH Head and Neck Surgery

  • Points a student should know about BCC
  • Has a slow but progressive growth over months to years.
  • It almost never metastasizes and is painless
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) keeps growing for months to 3 -4 years usually.
  • Usually invades deeper tissues. It may eat up underlying soft tissue and bone and cartilage slowly but progressively and has therefore been called rodent ulcer.
  • It almost never metastasizes but invades deeper tissues and therefore is best described as a locally malignant tumor.
  • Occurs on the face more often.
  • It is a painless, non-healing ulcer.
  • It has rolled, translucent borders
  • Dilated capillaries are characteristically seen on the borders of the ulcer. If it has not ulcerated but is a dome-shaped nodule, then dilated capillaries are seen on the entire surface of the nodule.
  • Local radiotherapy is done especially if the lesion is large or its removel may lead to disfigurement or if the patient is very old.
  • 5-Fluorouracil. It is a cytotoxic agent that is an antagonist of Pyrimidines. Its metabolites are incorporated into both DNA and RNA. Where surgery is not possible for some reason like very large size of BCC and/or the chance of severe disfigurement of the face is there, then  5-Fluorouracil has been used topically especially for superficial spreading type of BCC.
  • Cryosurgery. Freezing the lesions with Carbon dioxide snow has been successfully.
