Should I see my doctor about my stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma symptoms?

Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Family Practitioner

If you notice symptoms of stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma, you should talk to your doctor. Symptoms are often hard to distinguish from other conditions because they may just look like dry, irritated skin or a pesky 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. This is especially important because by the time it's reached stage 3, the cancer has already started to spread to other parts of the body. The earlier it's diagnosed and treated, the better your chance for a full recovery, so see a doctor as soon as you notice symptoms.
