Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinoma is a cancer of the outer layer of skin and mucous membranes and occurs most often in areas exposed to the sun. If untreated, squamous cell carcinoma may penetrate and destroy underlying tissue. In rare cases this type of cancer can spread to other organs of the body.


Overexposure to the sun is the leading cause of squamous cell carcinoma especially in people with fair skin and light hair. If you see a scaly red patch, elevated growth with a central depression, wart-like growth, nodules and open sores contact McKay Dermatology and we can diagnose the lesion. If cancer is detected, we will discuss the best treatment options for your individual needs.


Limit your exposure to sunlight and always wear sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and protective clothing when you venture outside.
