Unfortunately, there's no definite cure for stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma. However, if it's caught at stage 2, treatments for the disease are often quite successful. Some of the most effective treatment options may include surgical removal of the tumor (including Mohs surgery), curettage and electrodessication, and other therapies like radiation or chemotherapy. Talk to your doctor to determine the most effective treatment options for you.
