What Is Squamous Cell Cancer?
Squamous cell carcinoma is a type of cancer that develops in the squamous cells of the body. These flat cells are found on the surface of the skin and in the lining of many structures inside the body. Squamous cell carcinoma may develop in a variety of organs, including: the skin, mouth, esophagus, lungs, pancreas, prostate, bladder, vagina and cervix. Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common type of skin cancer, after basal cell carcinoma, and accounts for the majority of head and neck cancers.

"The best part for me was that my wife, Cindy, was able to find support and comfort, too. I knew how I felt physically and that I was getting better, but Cindy had no indication. She was scared and would ask me how I could be so calm. I felt relieved that she could find some support, because as my caregiver for all those months she needed it."
