During Squamous Cell, the cancer 1st forms in the non-vascular layer of the skin. As the tumor grows larger it reaches down into the dermis layer, and can shed cells into the bloodstream. Where does Squamous Cell Carcinoma generally occur? -Sun exposed areas -Forehead -Temple
-Back of hands
-Lower legs (for people who often sunbathe) Affects on the Body The victim will constantly feel pain in the infected area, a
growing bump, possible paralysis, and if not treated correctly it will result in death. Risk Factors -Having light-colored skin, blue or green eyes, or blond or red hair
-Long-term, daily sun exposure. (such as in people who work outside)
-Having many severe sunburns throughout a child’s life.
-Being of an older age.-Having had many x-rays. -This cancer cannot be inherited Prevention -Use high-quality sunscreens with a rating of at least a 15 sun protection factor (SPF), even if you will only be in the direct sunlight for a short time.
-Use large amounts of sunscreen on areas that are the most exposed, like your arms, feet, or neck.
-Look for sunscreens that block both UVA and UVB light.
-Use a waterproof formula so that the sunscreen will not come off when you are sweating.
-Repetitively reapply your sunscreen
-Use sunscreen in winter, too, if there is a lot of direct sunlight.
-Other important facts to help you avoid too much sun exposure include these facts below.
-Avoid surfaces that reflect light more, such as water, sand, concrete, and white-painted areas.
-The dangers are greater closer to the start of summer.
-Skin burns faster at higher altitudes.
-Avoid sun lamps, tanning beds, and tanning salons. Treatment -Skin Creams -Surgery -Photodynamic therapy -Chemotherapy -Radiation Therapy -Avoid Sunlight and other UV Rays -Eat healthy Diagnosis -MRI -Skin Biopsy -CAT Scan Who is most likely to have Squamous Cell Carcinoma? -Men are more likely to have it than women -African Americans are more likely to have in than Asians. Learn Anything New? From this project, I learned that skin cancer is not only the most common, but is also so diverse and there are many ways to cure or help prevent skin cancer. You can do this by having your doctor screen for all the multiple signs of pre-cancer and if needed, the doctor can treat this cancer before it becomes an issue.
