Squamous cell skin cancer (carcinoma) is a common type of skin cancer. It most often appears on the head, face, or neck.
This cancer is almost always cured when it is found early and treated. If not treated, it may grow and spread (metastasize).
This skin cancer is usually caused by too much sun. Using tanning beds or sunlamps can also cause it.
