What is  Squamous Cell Carcinoma? (Definition)

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells arising in the squamous cells, which compose most of the skin’s upper layers (the epidermis). It’s usually found on areas of the body damaged by UV rays from the sun or tanning beds. Sun-exposed skin includes the head, neck, ears, lips, arms, legs, and hands.  SCCs often look like scaly red patches, open sores, elevated growths with a central depression, or warts; they may crust or bleed.
