Caption: Squamous cell carcinoma. Close-up of a squamous cell carcinoma on the leg of an 88 year old woman. A carcinoma is a cancer arising from epithelial tissue, such as the skin. This is one of the most common forms of skin cancer. Squamous cells, scale-like cells in the skin, may become cancerous after prolonged exposure to strong sunlight or carcinogens such as arsenic, coal and tar. They can be fatal if allowed to spread. If caught in the early stages, the cancerous area can be excised surgically, but radiotherapy or chemotherapy may be necessary if the extent is not known. After removal, follow-up examinations should be made to check for re-occurrence.
