Management of primary cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma
This booklet is based on evidence and aims to make patients, carers and families aware of the care and treatment they should expect to receive when they have a type of skin cancer known as squamous cell carcinoma (SCC).
It is based on the SIGN guideline on management of primary cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma published in 2014.
The booklet explains:
what SCC is;
the treatment options currently available for SCC;
how you will be followed up; and
what you can do help prevent further SCC in the future.
This booklet can help you work with those involved in your care to decide what treatments can help you.
