Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Squamous Cell Carcinoma is the second most common form of skin cancer. If left untreated, actinic keratosis can turn into squamous cell carcinoma. They often occur as a red bump or scaly patch and are common in areas of chronic sun exposure. They can get much larger and metastasize to the lymph nodes if left untreated. If detected early, squamous cell carcinoma has a high cure rate. There are a few treatment options for this type of cancer. These treatment options depend on the size and location of cancer and can be discussed with your dermatologist.
