Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) of the Skin, Cutaneous Squamous Cell Carcinoma


Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the skin, also known as cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma, is a common type of skin cancer that arises from the squamous cells in the outermost layer of the skin. It is characterized by the abnormal growth of these cells, which can form scaly, red patches, or open sores. SCC can potentially spread to other parts of the body if left untreated.
