In brief: Many cases

Squamous cancer is a skin and epithelial malignancy with metastatic potential.
It is associated with sun exposure, the edges of burns, and smoking. It is rather chemo resistant and is usually treated with surgery and radiation. It can be nasty and lethal so if you suspect a lesion, get it seen quickly.
