Of course.

Bowen's disease, or squamous cell carcinoma in situ, is a malignant condition of skin cancer. 

It affects the outermost layer of skin (the squamous cells), and usually appears as a patch with clear edges on the skin. 

The patch may be 

  • red or pink
  • scaly or crusty
  • flat or raised
  • up to a few centimeters across
  • itchy (not always)
