Squamous Cell Carcinoma

What causes basaloid squamous cell carcinoma?

A Answers (1)

  • Basaloid squamous cell carcinoma develops in two different types of cells: basaloid cells and squamous cells. In basaloid squamous cell carcinoma, the DNA that controls these cells is damaged, leading to an overgrowth of cells that forms a tumor. The exact cause of why this happens in some people and not others is unknown, but factors like smoking and drinking alcohol may be related to the cause of this cancer.
