Squamous cell carcinoma

  by Dr. Yiannis Neofytou

Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common form of skin cancer. It usually occurs in areas of the body that have been affected by ultraviolet radiation from the sun. Squamous cell carcinoma has a rather slow development and unlike other types of skin cancer, it can spread through metastases to tissues, bones and nearby lymph nodes, where it can be difficult to treat. When diagnosed early, it is easy to treat.

Squamous cell carcinoma usually begins as a dome-shaped, red, scaly lump. It is usually rough with a crust and can bleed easily when scratched. Large lumps can cause itching or pain. The type of treatment a patient receives depends on how deep the cancer has reached and if it has spread.

Squamous cell carcinoma if diagnosed early can be treated in our office with surgical resection or photodynamic treatment (PDT)

Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
