Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)

Symptoms and Signs of Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)

Symptoms and signs can help medical professionals identify specific types of skin cancer. Symptoms of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are most often mistaken as congenital in nature, in which nodules may be perceived as lymph nodes and a bleeding lip sore is presumed to be a cold sore. The sign of skin cancer is first noticed when troubling skin issues surface, and then linger on without going through the normal healing process.  
Dermatologists and health care providers urge patients to observe changes in moles, report visible and palpable growths, and monitor sores that worsen in order to make a more accurate diagnosis. The most identifiable symptoms of SCC involve visible skin abnormalities such as nodules (raised bumps) and red, scaly patches that form on sun-exposed and sun-damaged skin.
