Caption: Squamous cell carcinoma of ear. Close up of an old man's ear, showing a squamous cell cancer at its tip (at centre). The tumour is seen at the margin of the ear as a dark brown, scaling ulcer. The edges are flaky, with a shiny appearance. Squamous cell cancer is one of the most common types of skin cancer and arises from excessive exposure to sunlight. It is most common in pale-skinned, fair- haired people over the age of sixty. Without treatment the tumour may spread to other parts of the body. The tumour is destroyed by cryotherapy (freezing), radiotherapy or surgical removal.
