Knowing the Difference between Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Basal Cell Carcinoma?

by: Moana Korikalo

Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Cancers are the most common Non-melanoma skin cancers and they can appear in a variety of forms. Skin cancer cells are located at the base of the outer layer of the skin or cover the internal and external surfaces of the body. Most non melanoma skin cancers develop on sun-exposed areas of the body, like the face, ear, neck, lips, and the backs of the hands. Each type, has varied growing rates and characteristics, if untreated they can spread to other parts of the body.


Most often we can not tell what is what because we all think that what we have is all the same. Well we are wrong! It is important to understand differences in skin appearance as the impact and damage SCC and BCC can cause to the skin is extensive. Look out for these symptoms and if present see your doctor;

1. If you find any change on the skin, especially in the size or colour of a mole or other darkly pigmented growth or spot, or a new growth
2. The scaliness, oozing, bleeding, or change in the appearance of a bump or nodule
the spread of pigmentation beyond its border such as dark colouring that spreads past the edge of a mole or mark a change in sensation, itchiness, tenderness, or pain

Usually Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) symptoms begin as a small lump on your skin that is smooth and pearly or waxy in form. It may bleed or develop a crust. The sore will appear as if the wound is healing, but will not improve. Keep a look out for flat, red spots, with a scaly and crusty appearance. BCCs are more likely to appear on your face especially around the eyes and on the forehead.

Squamous cell cancers (SCC) have a scaly appearance. Look out for a hard, horny cap growth on your skin which is tender when touched. SCCs are generally found on arms, hands and lower legs. Most importantly, if you notice something unusual on your skin that just suddenly appeared and hasn't gone away within a month get it checked.

Facing skin cancer can cause worry and panic due to the extreme nature of traditional skin cancer care. However, according to an evaluation study by Ten United Kingdom Hospitals there is now a world wide clinically approved skin cancer cream available that has advantages over conventional methods. The cure is a cream made from Glyhoalkaloid actives called CURADERM BEC5. For medical information on curaderm compared to other treatments, patient testimonials, and instructions for use about the cream compared to other treatment options and purchasing information please visit: http://cureskincancertoday.com/
