3-2 Journal: Health Promotion and Disease Prevention Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells arising in the squamous cell, which comprises most of the skin upper layer. They look like open scaly red patches, open sores, elevated growth with a central depression or warts and can become disfiguring and deadly if not controlled or treated (Skin Cancer Foundation, nd). In explaining to Ms. Morton, who was recently diagnosed with squamous cell skin cancer, we would tell her that anybody can get skin cancer and your risk of getting it increases depending on other factors such as exposure to ultraviolet rays both from sunlight and tanning beds, if you have a family history of skin cancer, chronic inflammation resulting from sunburns, scars, chronic ulcers and other skin infection. Preventing skin cancer can be fairly easy. It can be prevented by limiting your sun exposure especially during midday, avoiding tanning salon, use of sunscreen and by wearing sunglasses, hats and sun protective clothing (Lim J.L, Asgari M, 2016).
