Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common type of skin cancer.  It commonly presents on sun damaged skin as a pink/red lump on the skin. 

SCC usually appears as a scaly or crusty area of skin with a red area. Often it may have an ulcerated centre. SCC is not painful.

 

SCC may spread to other parts of the body if left untreated or left for too long.

SCC is treatable, if detected early.
