Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the 2nd most common skin cancer. Up to 250,000 new cases are diagnosed each year in the United States. It most commonly occurs in adults with fair skin who have had abundant sun exposure. Sun exposed areas are the most common areas to find SCCs. They typically present as scaling, hard plaques or nodules that can bleed or ulcerate easily.
