What are the signs and symptoms of squamous cell carcinoma?
Sometimes squamous cell carcinoma begins as a pre-cancerous growth called an actinic keratosis, which is visible as small, pink, itchy, scaly patches. Squamous cell carcinoma appears as a flat reddish patch that grows slowly, or a bump on the skin that is rough and sometimes dome-shaped and crusty. SCC often appears as an ulcer that won't heal.
