13. Picture of Squamous Cell Carcinoma 2
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of skin cancer that occurs due to excess UV sun exposure. These cancers may crust or bleed. The pictured SCC is a red lesion with a nodule and areas of thickening (hyperkeratosis). It is easy to differentiate a nodular basal cell carcinoma (BCC) from a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) because BCC does not develop hyperkeratosis.
