Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a common type of skin cancer. It is derived from squamous cells which are the flat cells that make up the outside layers of the skin called the epidermis. These cells are keratinising that is, they produce keratin, the protein that makes up skin, hair and nails.

Invasive SCC refers to cancer cells that have grown into the deeper layers of the skin called the dermis. Invasive SCC can rarely spread to distant tissues and may prove fatal.
