To care for someone with stage 1 squamous cell carcinoma, help support them both physically and emotionally. Most importantly, support them through diagnosis and treatment. After treatment, ensure they see their doctor for regular follow-up appointments, and make sure they continue to check their own skin frequently. Encourage them to protect their skin from the sun and to take good care of their overall health. Remember that being diagnosed with any stage of squamous cell carcinoma may cause emotional stress, so support them as much as possible as they cope with the disease's emotional challenges.
