What is Skin Cancer?

Squamous Cell Carcinoma is not as common as BCC, but it still occurs anywhere from 500.000 to 1 million in cases every year in the US alone.

So what is SCC exactly?

Squamous Cell Carcinoma forms when squamous cells begin to grow uncontrollably in the top layers of the skin, which is called the epidermis. In most cases, it is caused by repeated exposure to UV rays over time.

Where squamous cell carcinoma originates

This type of skin cancer usually develops slowly but can spread to the lymph nodes and other organs if left untreated. If caught early though, it is highly treatable. So make sure to recognize all skin cancer symptoms and self-check regularly.
