Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) accounts for about 20% of skin cancer and occurs mainly on sun-exposed surfaces, although with a slightly different distribution to BCC.
For example, SCC is relatively more common on the ears, hands, arms, and legs than BCC. Unlike BCC, SCC usually arises from an actinic keratosis (AK), a reddish, crusting, precancerous lesion also related to UV exposure. AKs may occur at a relatively young age, and can take years to develop. About 1 in 20 AKs will transform into SCC over 20 years, and the presence of AKs identifies persons who are likely to develop skin cancer.
SCC is almost 100% curable when treated early, but in later stages can become extremely dangerous, not only invading locally, but metastasizing to other parts of the body. About 2% of skin SCCs ultimately lead to death, or about 2,000 deaths per year in the United States.

The Eggplant Cancer Cure – A Treatment for Skin Cancer and New Hope for Other Cancers From Natures Pharmacy by Dr. Bill E. Cham, Ph.D.
Treatment with an eggplant extract, discussed in this book, and elsewhere on the Internet, has proven highly effective in curing skin cancers other than melanomas. More information can be found at his web site.
Curaderm BEC5 Cream is the revolutionary skin cancer treatment which is becoming the topic of discussion in health food stores, doctor’s offices and at the dinner table. BEC5 comes from a plant substance called solsaodine glycosides found in Nightshade plants such as eggplant. With more than 25 years of research, Dr. Cham claims a more than 95% success rate in treating and removing these forms of non-melanoma skin carcinoma without damage to the surrounding tissue. The cream has not proven to be effective in treating melanoma. Further studies with other extracts (BEC and BEC2) have shown a 100% success rate.
