What are the symptoms of spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma?

Symptoms of spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma usually begin with some kind of skin growth. Often, the tumors of spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma begin on an area of skin that's already injured by trauma, sun exposure, or radiation therapy. The growths may look like a red bump or a scaly red or tan patch of skin. Tumors are often crusty and raised, and they may look like sores that won't heal. Spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma most commonly develops on areas of skin that are exposed to the sun (such as the face, neck, and arms) but may develop almost anywhere. If you notice any suspicious symptoms, especially sores that won't heal, talk to your doctor.
