Squamous Cell Carcinoma in Horses
  by Robert N. Oglesby DVM

Introduction

Introduction » Appearance » SCC of the Eye » Treatment » Prognosis » More Info 

One of the common skin cancers of horses is squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). SCC is usually a locally aggressive, metastatic cancer requiring early diagnosis and treatment to prevent spread. Other, less serious, conditions that may resemble SCC is habronemiasis, chronic skin infections and proud flesh (excessive granulation tissue). Horses with white skin seem to be particularly susceptible to SCC.
