Squamos Cell Carcinoma
Dr. Mendy Maccabee treats Squamos cell carcinoma in Hood River
Squamos cell cancer is very common and not usually dangerous unless ignored for a long time. People with SCC often develop scaly, red patches, open sores, or warts on their skin. These abnormal growths can develop anywhere, but they’re most often found in areas that receive the most exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, either from sunlight or from tanning beds or lamps. Examples include the nose, tops of ears, and scalp in men. Sometimes this can be treated with special creams, more often surgical excision is required.
