The two lesions shown are ulcerating squamous cell carcinomas which are crusting in the lateral canthus of the right eye, and the other on the anterior hairline. These lesions are relatively poorly defined. There is hyperkeratosis present with both of them and therefore, squamous cell carcinoma would be the best diagnosis. This was confirmed with biopsy. Squamous cell cancers are the second most frequent form of skin cancer, representing about 20% of all skin cancers diagnosed.
