What is the use of squamous cell?

Squamous cells are thin, flat cells that look like fish scales, and are found in the tissue that forms the surface of the skin, the lining of the hollow organs of the body, and the lining of the respiratory and digestive tracts. They also play a role in diffusion, osmosis and filtration. This makes them important in the kidney, in the alveoli of the lungs and in the walls of capillaries. Squamous cell carcinoma of the skin is a common form of skin cancer that develops in the squamous cells that make up the middle and outer layers of the skin.
