Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)

This skin cancer often develops on skin that has soaked up the sun for years. They are generally founds on the face, lips, neck, arms, scalp, backs of the hands, ears and legs.

Signs include:

  • A bump or lump on the skin that can feel rough.
  • As the bump or lump grows, it may become dome-shaped or crusty and can bleed.
  • A sore that doesn’t heal, or heals and returns.
  • Flat, reddish, scaly patch that grows slowly (Bowen’s disease).
  • In rare cases, SCC begins under a nail, which can grow and destroy the nail.
