Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) is a common form of skin cancer that lies in the upper layer of the epidermis. These growths are most commonly found on sun-exposed areas of the body: face, ears, neck, scalp, shoulders, and back. As people age the chances of having SCC increase, thus it’s important to ensure your residents’ skin is cared for by a dermatological specialist.
If SCC is diagnosed at an early stage, cryotherapy can be done on-site to remove the growth. If the cancer is diagnosed at a later stage, the area with SCC may need to be treated with MOHS surgery, Excisional surgery, or another method at our nearest location.
