Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common form of nonmelanoma skin cancer. Squaumous Cell Carcinoma is not only found on the skin, it can be found in many different parts of the body including the mouth, nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses.
When detected early in its onset the disease can usually be controlled. Squamous cell carcinoma rarely causes further problems when caught and treated early. Untreated, squamous cell carcinoma can grow large or spread to other parts of your body, causing serious complications.
Like most other Sinonasal cancers Squamous cell carcinoma when occurring in the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses behaves like a simple sinus infection. This makes diagnosis very difficult.
