Because many skin cancers develop where they can be see, there is good chance of catching them early. Regular examination of skin for any new or unusual or changes in existing moles is critical. If you find anything suspicious, you should discuss it with your primary care physician, dermatologist or health care professional who is qualified to recognize signs of skin cancer and diagnose disease. Unusual skin growth or sore that doesn't go away may be first indication of non - melanoma skin cancer. Skin Cancer may initially appear as nodule, rash or irregular patch on surface of skin. These spots be raise and may ooze or bleed easily. As cancer grows, size or shape of visible skin mass may change and cancer may into deeper layers of skin. It may be difficult to differentiate one form of skin cancer from another, so consult dermatologist if you notice suspicious or evolving marks on your skin. Basal Cell carcinomas on head or neck may first appear as pale patch of skin or waxy translucent bump. You may see blood vessels or indentation in center of bump. If Carcinoma develops on chest, it may look more like brownish scar or flesh - colored lesion. As cancer develop, it may bleed if or ooze and become crusty in some areas. Squamous Cell carcinomas also develop as lumps on skin. These firm lumps are typically rough on surface, unlike smooth and pearly appearance of Basal Cell Carcinoma. If nodule doesn't form, cancer may develop more like reddish, scaly patch. Unlike skin rash that goes away with these rough, lesion - like patches continue to develop slowly. This type of cancer is typically found in head, neck, hand or arms, but it may also develop in other areas, such as genital region or in scars or skin sores. Merkel Cell carcinomas may appear as red or flesh - color moles that are raised grow quickly. These small tumors usually appear on sun - exposed areas of skin, such as face, neck or scalp.

Risk factors

One in six develop skin cancer at some point. Skin Cancer accounts for one third of all cancers in United States. Most patients with skin develop nonmelanoma skin cancer. This group of Cancers includes basal Cell Carcinoma, most common neoplasm worldwide, and Cell Carcinoma. Fortunately, mortality associated with Skin Cancer is unusual. However, malignant accounts for 75 percent of all deaths associated with Skin Cancer. Melanoma, eighth most common malignancy in United States, is cancer with most rapidly increasing incidence. One in 1 500 Americans born in 1935 were likely to develop compared with one in 105 people born in 1993. 1 in contrast to nonmelanoma Cancer, which typically affects older people. Frequency Of Melanoma Peaks Between 20 And 45 Years Of Age. Mortality rates are higher in than in women. This higher rate may occur because lesions tend to develop in less easily observed areas, such as back, in men. Mortality is also increasing among blacks for this reason, as is propensity to develop more aggressive tumors and to be diagnosed at later stages. Rising Incidence Of Skin Cancer Over Past Several Decades May Be Primarily Attributed To Increased Sun Exposure Associated With Societal And Lifestyle Shifts In US Population And To Depletion Of Protective Ozone Layer. 3 incidence of Skin Cancer increasing by epidemic proportions. Basal Cell Cancer remains most common skin neoplasm, and simple excision is generally curative. Squamous Cell Cancers may be preceded by actinic keratosespremalignant lesions that are treated with cryotherapy, excision, or Topical 5 - fluorouracil. While Squamous Cell Carcinoma is easily cured with local excision, it may invade deeper structures and metastasize. Aggressive local growth and metastasis are common features of malignant which account for 75 percent of all deaths associated with Skin Cancer. Early detection greatly improves of patients with malignant Melanoma. Differential diagnosis of pigmented lesions is challenging, although ABCD and seven - checklists are helpful in determining which pigment lesions require excision. Sun exposure remains most important risk factor for all skin neoplasms. Thus, patients should be taught basic safe sun measures: sun avoidance during peak Ultraviolet - B hours; proper use of and protective clothing; and avoidance of suntanning.
