Squamous Cell Carcinoma – Skin Cancer Treatment

Squamous cell carcinomas detected at an early stage and removed promptly are almost always curable and cause minimal damage. However, left untreated, they eventually penetrate the underlying tissues and can become dangerous.

Identifying Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Any suspicious growth should be seen by one of our Naples or Fort Myers dermatologists immediately. A tissue sample (biopsy) will be examined under a microscope to arrive at a diagnosis. If tumor cells are present, we will proceed to treat the cancer.

Treatment for Squamous Cell Carcinoma

Fortunately, there are several effective ways to eradicate squamous cell carcinoma. The choice of treatment is based on the type, size, location, and depth of penetration of the tumor, as well as the patients age and general health.

Treatment can usually be performed on an outpatient basis at Harris Dermatology. A local anesthetic is used during most surgical procedures. Pain or discomfort is usually minimal with most techniques, and there is rarely much pain afterwards.
