Caption: Squamous cell carcinoma of nose. Close up of the nose of a 60 year-old male patient with a squamous cell cancer on the nostril. The tumour is seen as a dark pink, scaling ulcer. 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.
