What is Squamous Cell Carcinoma?
A squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of skin cancer. There are two main types of skin cancer: melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) as is Basal cell carcinoma.
Squamous Cell Carcinoma is the second most common type of skin cancer diagnosed. This type of cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells arising from the squamous cells in the epidermis – the skin’s outermost layer.
