What does Squamous Cell Carcinoma look like?

Squamous cell skin cancers can vary in appearance, but here, we’ve provided some examples of how it might appear on your skin. 

Squamous cell carcinoma initially appears as a skin-colored or light red nodule, usually with a rough surface. They often resemble warts and sometimes resemble open bruises with raised, crusty edges. The lesions tend to develop slowly and can grow into a large tumor, sometimes with central ulceration.

SCCs can occur on any part of the body, but they are more common on areas of skin exposed to the sun like the scalp, ear or face, so pay attention to these areas. 

Squamous cell carcinoma usually develops slowly but can spread to the lymph nodes and other organs if left untreated. If caught early though, it is highly treatable. Early detection strategies are crucial for a successful outcome. 

You will notice that all these skin cancer pictures are quite different from one another. Note that not all squamous cell cancers have the same appearance so these photos should serve as a general reference for what they can look like.
