What You Need to Know About Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Do you enjoy getting some sun in the summer time? Sometimes too much sun can cause certain skin cancers and this is unfortunately one of them. Squamous Cell Carcinoma or Squamous Cell Cancer typically begins in the squamous cells and about 8 out of 10 Americans have this or a certain type of skin cancer. Those who develop this condition often have scaly, red patches, open sores, or warts and they can grow anywhere.
UV radiation like being in the sunlight or tanning bed too long or too often increases your chance of obtaining this condition. This can also happen to those who don’t spend much time in the sunlight either. It’s always good to take care of your skin and get the right amount of sunlight.
