Should I see my doctor about my stage 1 squamous cell carcinoma symptoms?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

If you notice symptoms of stage 1 squamous cell carcinoma, you should talk to your doctor. Symptoms are often hard to distinguish from other conditions because they're pretty mild at first and may just look like red, scaly skin or a sore. However, if you notice any of these symptoms that don't heal after a few weeks, it's a good idea to talk to a doctor. It's good to catch squamous cell carcinoma while it's still in stage 1 because the earlier it's diagnosed and treated, the more likely your chance for a full recovery.
