Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) also primarily occurs on sun exposed areas of the skin, though there are exceptions. It may starts as a small rough patch that is barely visible. They usually expand slowly, and in a very small percentage of cases will become invasive and even may spread to the lymph nodes and beyond. However, they are usually found and treated easily. Treatments for SCC are similar to those for basal cell carcinoma.Treatments include electrodesiccation and curettage, excision, topical treatment and Mohs’ micrographic surgery.
