What is Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC)?
Squamous cell carcinoma refers to an abnormal growth of cells within the upper layers of the epidermis, or skin. While SCC is the second most common form of skin cancer, it is not something to be overly concerned about. If squamous cell carcinomas are detected early, they can easily be removed. If you think you may have SCC, call Coastal Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Center in Los Alamitos, CA, today to get a consultation.
It’s important to act quickly when a squamous cell carcinoma is detected. Leaving it untreated can lead to further skin damage which may be permanent. Squamous cell carcinomas can become more serious if they begin to affect lymph nodes, organs or tissues.
