SCC (squamous cell carcinoma)

This is a type of skin cancer that commonly presents as a fragile, pink fleshy skin lesion that is growing and can bleed. There is a small risk of spread to lymph glands in the area. SCC, as with other skin cancers, is mainly caused by chronic sun exposure.

As with BCC the mainstay of treatment is surgery to allow further analysis and ensure removal, and this is usually recommended over other treatments. Overall 95% of SCC’s are removed completely first time. Most cases of SCC are discussed at a Multi-Disciplinary Skin Cancer Team meeting where any need for further treatment or follow up is discussed.
