About Carcinoma, Squamous Cell

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common skin cancer with between 200,000 and 250,000 cases reported each year. It is a malignant cancer that usually develops from the epidermis and/or the mucous lining of the body cavities (epithelium), but may occur anywhere on the body. SCC most often affects individuals who are exposed to large amounts of sunlight. Susceptibility is related to the amount of melanin pigment in the skin, and light-skinned persons are most vulnerable. With appropriate treatment, it is usually curable.
