Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the most common skin cancer but are potentially dangerous because they can spread (metastasize) to other tissues and organs and may become life-threatening.

They usually appear on areas of the body where there has been a lot of sun exposure and are best treated early.

Smoking can cause SCC of the lips.
