The squamous carcinoma is a malignant tumor of epidermal keratinocytes, which involves the dermis and usually occurs in sun-exposed areas. The local destruction can be considerable and in advanced stages leads to metastasis. The diagnosis is made by biopsy. Treatment depends on the tumor characteristics and includes the curettage and Elektrodissektion, surgical excision, cryosurgery and sometimes radiotherapy.

Squamous is the second most common type of skin cancer after basal cell carcinoma, with about 700,000 cases annually in the US, and 2,500 deaths. It can develop in normal tissue in existing actinic keratosis, in a range of oral leukoplakia or in a burn scar.

Symptoms and signs The clinical picture is highly variable, with all non-healing lesions are suspect in sun-exposed areas. The tumor may first appear as red papule or plaque with scaly or crusted surface and then convert gnarled, occasionally with wart-like surface. In some cases, the bulk of the lesion may be below the level of the surrounding skin. Finally, the tumor ulcerated and penetrates into the underlying tissue.
