How do I manage my stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma on a daily basis?

Managing your stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma on a daily basis begins with treatment. Once you've been treated, it's important to check in with your doctor regularly to make sure the cancer hasn't come back or spread, especially within the first year following treatment. It's also very important to continue checking your own skin frequently, particularly in the area where the tumor originally occurred. Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen and long-sleeved clothing. Taking care of your overall health is important for managing stage 2 squamous cell carcinoma, so eat a balanced diet and don't smoke.
