If you notice symptoms of basaloid squamous cell carcinoma, you should talk to your doctor. Symptoms are often hard to distinguish from other conditions because the tumors usually form in areas that aren't visible, so the resulting symptoms - like difficulty swallowing, coughing, and hoarseness - often seem like symptoms of some other condition. However, if you notice suspicious symptoms, it's a good idea to see a doctor. The earlier it's diagnosed and treated, the better the chance of successful treatment.
