Understanding Skin Cancer- Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common type of skin cancer, but is rarely discussed. Unlike the characteristics of melanomas SCCs usually show up as red or dome-shaped bumps that are scaly and rough sometimes resembling warts. They may also bleed easily when scraped.

These skin legions tend to manifest on areas of cumulative exposure to UV rays (lips, ears, feet and backs of hands). As with all skin cancers exposure to the sun is the number one cause, especially tanning beds or history of severe burns. 

While Squamous Cell Carcinoma is highly treatable when caught early it can spread to the bones, tissue and lymph-nodes if left untreated. In most cases excision or MOHs surgery will be used to successfully remove all the cancerous tissue.

If you notice any new lesions, changes in existing areas or spots of concern take action and make an appointment to see one of our expert medical doctors at Germain Dermatology.
