Should I see a doctor for my spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma symptoms?

If you notice symptoms of spindle cell squamous cell carcinoma (SCSCC), such as red bumps or scaly patches on your skin, you should talk to your doctor. Symptoms are often hard to distinguish from other conditions because they're mild at first, and later they just look like scaly skin or a sore. However, if you notice that any of these symptoms don't go away or heal after a few weeks, it's a good idea to talk to a doctor. SCSCC tends to be a more aggressive type of squamous cell carcinoma, so the earlier it's diagnosed and treated, the more likely your chance for a full recovery.
