Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Skin cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) on the ear (pinna) of an 86-year-old man. This cancer is the second most common type of skin cancer and affects the flat scale-like cells in the upper layers of the skin. Most cases arise from pre- cancerous lesions known as solar keratoses, which are caused by sun damage. It mostly affects the elderly and is more frequent in men. The cancer can spread (metastasise) to other parts of the body. Treatment is with surgical removal of the tumour, combined with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
