Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)

A squamous cell carcinoma of the skin concerns the upper layers of the skin. Generally, this skin cancer grows quickly and is capable of spreading via the blood or lymphatic system.


A good treatment for the SCC is excising (cutting out) the affected skin patch with a small safety margin around it. During this treatment the skin is locally anaesthetized. This way, the skin cancer is generally safely- and well-treatable.
