Is spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma serious?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

Spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma is more aggressive than other types of squamous cell carcinoma, but it's usually treatable. If it's found early, spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma is almost always successfully treated. However, if it's left untreated, the cancer can spread throughout the body and may be more difficult to treat. Because early diagnosis and treatment usually results in a successful recovery, it's important to talk to your doctor as soon as you notice any symptoms of spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma.
