  • Introduction

    Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most frequent cancers of the skin. In general, it is a locally invasive, malignant tumour with a low rate of metastasis, deriving from squamous cells found of the superficial of the skin. Skin lesions often appear as papules, patches or nodules, which maybe hyperkeratotic. This type of skin cancer can be found at all areas of the body where the squamous cells are covered. However, the most common sites of skin squamous cell carcinoma(SCC) occur on the head and neck, with the rate of 50% to 75% in total.1 SCC not only destroy important anatomical structures, such as nose, ear, eye, and lip, but bring economic burden and mental stress on patients as well. Moreover, it may be fatal if it spreads to other parts of the body.
