12. Picture of Squamous Cell Carcinoma 1
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of cancer that arises from squamous cells, which are found in the upper layer of the skin (epidermis). Squamous cells are also found in the lining of the respiratory tract, GI tract, and hollow organs. Squamous cell carcinoma may occur on the skin or any area where squamous cells are found.
