How do I manage my stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma on a daily basis?

Managing your stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma on a daily basis begins with treatment. Since stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma has spread throughout the body, treatment may be more intensive and more physically and emotionally draining. Because of this, it's important to take advantage of resources like counseling, support groups, and friends and family. Once you've been treated, you should 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 4 squamous cell carcinoma, so eat a balanced diet and don't smoke.
