Squamous Cell Skin Cancer

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.

Hi,

Squamous cell carcinoma is usually best managed by excision. Most of the Squamous cell carcinoma have a good prognosis if they are identified and treated early. Onthe otehr hand if there is a delay in identification, it may lead to disfigurement and difficult to treat.

Since in your case Squamous cell carcinoma has been identified, the prognosis would generally be good.

Keep us posted and let us know if you may have other questions.

Best regards
