How do I manage my squamous cell carcinoma on a daily basis?

Managing your squamous cell carcinoma on a daily basis begins with treatment. Once you've been treated, it's important to check in with your doctor regularly to make sure the cancer hasn't come back or spread. It's also very important to continue checking your own skin frequently, especially in the area where the cancer originally occurred. Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen and protective clothing. Taking care of your overall health is important for managing squamous cell carcinoma, so eat a balanced diet and don't smoke. Care for your emotional health, too, by taking advantage of resources like counseling, support groups, and friends and family.
