Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of skin cancer that originates in the middle and outer layers of the skin as a result of chronic UV exposure. SCC is most likely to develop on the back of hands, face, neck, lips, and scalp, all of which are frequently exposed to sunlight.

Common signs of SCC include:

  • A firm, red growth
  • A sore that may be flat with scaly crust
  • More likely to develop on any sun-exposed area
