Of all types of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common. Like BCC, SCC is a non-melanoma type of cancer and unlikely to spread. The same types of treatments are used for squamous cell carcinoma, or SCC. Excisional surgery, an operation during which the physician cuts the entire tumor out at once with a scalpel, has an excellent success rate at 90%. Local anesthesia is usually used for these surgeries, which can be completed in a doctor’s office or a hospital.
Procedures for treating or removing skin cancer vary, depending upon the type and size of the tumor or tumors. While these two common forms of cancer have high survival rates, they can result in moderate to severe disfigurement when left untreated. Surgery can often help prevent such disfigurement from occurring. Reconstructive surgery and skin grafting may be necessary to fully repair the skin.
