Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is the Second Most Common Form of Skin Cancer.
What is Squamous Cell Carcinoma?
Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin is a common skin cancer that typically develops in chronic sun exposed areas of your body. This type of skin cancer is usually not nearly as aggressive as melanoma and is uncontrolled growth of cells in the epidermis of your skin.
It can become disfiguring and sometimes deadly if allowed to grow. Squamous cell carcinomas are at least twice as frequent in men as in women. They rarely appear before age 50 and are most often seen in individuals in their 70’s.
