Not in the usual circumstances.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query, albeit short and specific.
Seen the pictures you have posted.

Noted that you are 27 years old male with a scaling tender red patch on right forearm for about a month. This looks to be a chronic abscess which has organized.

Squamous cell carcinoma does not discharge pus in the usual appearances.
I hope this answers your query, please feel free to ask for further relevant queries if you feel that there is a gap of communication.
