Caption

Skin cancer. Close-up of a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) on the lip of a 69-year-old female patient. Squamous cells are flat scale-like cells in the upper layers of the skin. SCC is the second most common type of skin cancer. It is almost always slow growing and may spread deeply into underlying connective tissue. It mostly affects the elderly. Treatment is with surgical removal of the tumour, combined with radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
