Terms & Properties

Concept Unique Identifier (CUI): C0007137

NCI Thesaurus Code: C2929  (see NCI Thesaurus info)

Semantic Type: Neoplastic Process

NCIt Definition: A carcinoma arising from squamous epithelial cells. Morphologically, it is characterized by the proliferation of atypical, often pleomorphic squamous cells. Squamous cell carcinomas are graded by the degree of cellular differentiation as well, moderately, or poorly differentiated. Well differentiated carcinomas are usually associated with keratin production and the presence of intercellular bridges between adjacent cells. Representative examples are lung squamous cell carcinoma, skin squamous cell carcinoma, and cervical squamous cell carcinoma.

RADLEX Definition: A carcinoma derived from stratified squamous epithelium. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed) [MeSH]

MSH Definition: A carcinoma derived from stratified SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)

HPO Definition: The presence of squamous cell carcinoma of the skin. [HPO:probinson]

NCI-GLOSS Definition: Cancer that begins in squamous cells, which are thin, flat cells that look like fish scales. Squamous cells are found in the tissue that forms the surface of the skin, the lining of the hollow organs of the body, and the passages of the respiratory and digestive tracts.

CDISC Definition: A malignant neoplasm arising from squamous epithelial cells.

CSP Definition: carcinoma developed from squamous epithelium.
