A common form of cancer, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is characterized by uninhibited growth of cells in the epidermis (or the skin’s outer layers). SCC typically appears as open sores, elevated growths, scaly red patches, and warts that may crust or bleed. The number of cases of SCC has increased 200% in the last three decades, in the United States. Typically caused by exposure to the ultraviolet light, SCC may occur anywhere on the body but is most common on the ears, lips, face, neck, hands, arms, and legs.
