How common is stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma?

It's difficult to determine the exact number of cases of stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma. This is due in part to the fact that the cancer may be diagnosed and treated before it reaches stage 2, or it may not be diagnosed till it's reached a later stage.
