Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an aggressive skin cancer characterized by nodules and/or red, scaly patches that may form on sun-exposed skin such as the ears, face, lips, and mouth. Though white and/or fair-skinned people are most prone to developing squamous cell carcinoma, people of all skin types must take precaution to limit sun exposure and get screened for any abnormal skin issues. If this type of skin cancer is left untreated, it can spread to other regions of the body. However, squamous cell carcinoma is highly treatable with early detection; curable through minor surgeries and/or alternative treatments. Doctors at Florida Hospital are highly skilled to screen patients experiencing skin issues, will conduct tests to identify whether skin cancer is present, and can determine if a skin condition is squamous cell carcinoma. If an unknown skin condition is causing swelling, breathing ailments, and cardiac issues, call 9-1-1 immediately.
