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.

Treatment

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.
