Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)

Second most common skin cancer

This is the second most common skin cancer after BCC. It is also associated with sun damage.
SCC is more aggressive than BCC as it occasionally spreads to other sites in the body. It has a scaly, warty surface.

Treatment is by excision. If small, this may be done with local anaesthetic injection in the rooms. If larger, it is usually done in day surgery with local anaesthetic and intravenous sedation (sleepy and relaxed but not general anaesthetic).
