Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Squamous cell carcinomas are the second most common skin cancers. While generally these do not spread to involve other organ systems, they rarely can metastasize to the lymph nodes in certain settings. Squamous cell carcinomas often show up on the skin as a red scaly patch or bump, and sometimes they are painful. If you have a lesion on your skin that fits this description, you need to have it checked. Both Dr. Casey Shaba and Dr. Amy Valet are board-certified dermatologists and experts at diagnosing skin cancer using a simple procedure called a skin biopsy.
