Is there a cure for stage 0 squamous cell carcinoma?

Unfortunately, there's no guaranteed cure for stage 0 squamous cell carcinoma. However, if it's caught at stage 0, treatments for the disease are almost always successful. The most effective treatment options may include surgical removal of the tumor (including Mohs surgery), curettage and electrodessication, and others like radiation or chemotherapy. Talk to your doctor to determine the most effective treatment options for you.
