What is Squamous Cell Carcinoma?

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of cancer coming from thin, flat cells in the upper layers of the skin or lining certain organs. SCC often occurs on the skin but can also occur in other areas with mucous membranes. Treatment may include surgery, chemotherapy, or radiation.
