Squamous cell carcinoma is a cancer of the skin. Exposure to sunlight is one trigger-factor for this cancer and it is seen more commonly in white cats, and cats kept in hot, sunny countries. The tumour commonly affects the nose or the ears and can initially look like a small scratch or wound that won't heal. Spread (metastasis) of these tumours is uncommon but local lymph nodes are sometimes affected.
Squamous Cell Carcinoma is best treated with a combination of internal and external herbs. The internal mixes we recommend to be used along side the SCC Ointment are SCC Internal Support and Maritime Pine Bark and also the SCC Extrenal Oil.
