This is the second commonest form of skin cancer after basal cell carcinoma . These occur on sunshine exposed areas and are related to outdoor exposure.

There is very little chance of this problem spreading to any internal area of the body but they do need specialist assessment and surgical removal.

Unlike basal cell carcinomas which are often smooth and domed, squamous cell carcinomas are usually scaly and more irregular. If you are worried use 'consult the specialist' now for my expert opinion.
