Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin
Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin (spinocellular tumor, squamous cell carcinoma and spinalioma) is an invasive tumor with squamous cellular differentiation. It can be seen in any parts of the body but especially invades exposed isolated skin areas. In addition to that, it frequently occurs on the lower lip. Squamous cell carcinoma is also seen of the external genital organs as well as the perianal region. It is the most aggressive malignant tumor amongst all epithelial neoplasms of the skin. Squamous cell carcinoma is seen primarily on the face of old people. It has the same frequency of appearance in men and women.
We use FDT (photodynamic therapy) to treat squamous cell carcinoma in our clinic. FDT provides radical excision of the tumor in addition to acting selectively, without damaging healthy tissue. This is especially important when the tumor is localized on the lips, external ear, in the region of the alae of the nose (nasal wings), orbits of the eye, wherein routine treatment is not applicable or leads to pronounced deformation.
