Is stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma serious?

Stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma is more serious than earlier stages of the cancer because it's started to spread. At this fourth stage, squamous cell carcinoma has moved past the skin and into nearby bone and lymph nodes. If it's left untreated, the cancer will continue to spread throughout the body, making it difficult to treat. The earlier it's found and treated, the better the chances for recovery, so talk to your doctor as soon as you notice any symptoms of stage 3 squamous cell carcinoma.
