I am a 30 year old female diagnosed with Squamous Cell Skin Cancer. In the biopsy, the test came back that the margins were not clear so I am having surgery on Tuesday to remove more of the skin. Can you please tell me how agressive this type of skin cancer is and what are the chances of successful removal? Thanks for your help and support.
