Squamous Cell Carcinoma

squamous

Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common type of skin cancer. Mainly caused by exposure to the sun, squamous cell carcinoma usually develops on the face, scalp, neck and ears but can develop anywhere on the body. This type of skin cancer tends to grow deeper and, if left untreated, can metastasize to other organs in the body. Often appearing as a red firm bump, a scaly patch or a non-healing sore, it is important to monitor your skin for changes and have regular skin cancer screenings with your dermatologist.

If you have a suspicious lesion or an area of concern, please contact our office to schedule an appointment to see a dermatologist.
