Unfortunately, there's no guaranteed cure for squamous cell carcinoma. However, treatments may make it possible to completely remove the cancer, especially if it's caught early. The most effective treatment options for squamous cell carcinoma may include surgical removal of the tumor (including Mohs surgery), curettage and electrodessication, and in some cases, radiation. Talk to your doctor to determine the most effective treatment options for you.
