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

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Managing your spindle cell 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. This is especially important in the first few months after treatment because spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma may be more likely to spread. It's also  important to continue checking your own skin frequently for any new or unusual growths, and continue protecting your skin from the sun. Taking care of your overall health is important for managing spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma, so eat a balanced diet and don't smoke. Care for your emotional health, too, with resources like counseling, support groups, friends and family.
