The second most common type of skin cancer is squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), which affects the top layer of the skin. Squamous skin cells are the ones that are quickly shed as new cells form, but even these cells can mutate and become a cancerous growth. An estimated two out of ten cases of skin cancer are diagnosed as SCC. At LM Medical NYC, we offer the diagnosis of squamous cell carcinoma and treatment at our medical facility in Manhattan.

Warning Signs and Symptoms of SCC

Squamous cell carcinoma is a slowly progressing type of skin cancer that affects the top skin layer, usually in areas with the most sun exposure. The hands, face, scalp, neck, chest, hands and arms are common areas where SCC can appear. The most common warning signs and symptoms of SCC include:

  • Small red bumps on the skin
  • A flat, crusty sore
  • New sore on an old wound or scar
  • Actinic keratosis – a pre-cancerous condition that can evolve into SCC
  • Bowens disease – red, scaly patches which can be early stages of SCC

Squamous cell carcinoma skin lesions may itch or be painful, but some have no symptoms at all. It is important to have any persistent skin lesion, sore or lump examined and diagnosed. If it is SCC or another type of skin cancer, it should be removed or treated to stop the growth from spreading.

At LM Medical NYC, our board certified dermatologist, Dr. Morgan Rabach, can perform diagnosis and treatment for squamous cell carcinoma and other types of skin cancer. We also perform preventive skin checks to help identify any early signs of skin cancers to ensure our patients receive early treatment to prevent the spread of cancer to other areas of the body.

If you have any suspicious skin growths, it is vital to have your skin examined by a qualified dermatologist. Contact us at LM Medical NYC to schedule an appointment with expert dermatologist Dr. Morgan at our medical clinic in Greenwich Village.

Taylor L.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Chris B.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
