How often does Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin metastasize? Pls don't say "not often". Ie. 1%, 2%, etc is what I am wondering- thanks

How often does Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin metastasize?  Pls don't say "not often".  Ie. 1%, 2%, etc is what I am wondering- thanks

Rarely!: I would say the chances of metastases are somewhere between 1% or less. It depends on the degree of differentiation and the size of the primary lesion before it was removed. Poorly differentiated squamous cell carcinomas , if more than 1-2 cm in size have a higher risk for metastases...up to 5% to 10%. I hope this helps. Send us the pathology report, then we can be more exacting in our response. ...Read more

Cancer; squamous cell carcinoma of the floor of the mouth, second occurcence and the danger`s involved, what do you suggest?

Some ideas: If you are still smoking or using smokeless tobacco, stop. A recurrent cancer must be treated on an individual basis depending on how far it has gotten and what the pathologist found. I see you're only 35 years old and this makes your case atypical. Try to get to a cancer center that handles a lot of these cases. ...Read more
