Should I see my doctor about my stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma symptoms?

If you notice symptoms of stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma, you should talk to your doctor right away. Symptoms are often hard to distinguish from other conditions because they may 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 4, the cancer has already started to spread throughout the body.
