Close-up of the finger of an adult male patient, one week after amputation due to squamous cell carcinoma (skin cancer) under the nail. See image 1 before amputation showing part of the cancer. This second most common type of skin cancer affects the upper squamous cells of the skin, but tumours may spread (metastasise) to other parts of the body. It is commonly caused by sun damage.
