Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin

Updated: 2021-03-18


Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin is a common, treatable form of skin cancer that develops in the thin, flat squamous cells that make up the outer skin layer. Too much exposure to UV radiation from the sun or tanning lamps is a cause.


It can appear as a nodule, sore, or rough patch on the skin.


Treatments include topical medication and minor surgery.
