Squamous Cell Carcinoma

The main symptom of squamous cell skin cancer is a growing bump that may have a rough, scaly surface and flat reddish patches.

The bump is usually located on the face, ears, neck, hands, or arms, but may occur on other areas.

A sore that does not heal can be a sign of squamous cell cancer. Any change in an existing wart, mole, or other skin lesions could be a sign of skin cancer.

Call for an appointment if you see the lesion change in:
  • Appearance
  • Color
  • Size
  • Texture

Also, call if you have pain, inflammation, bleeding, or itching of an existing skin lesion.
