Skin cancer

What is Skin Cancer?

Skin cancer is a type of cancer that develops in the skin cells. There are several types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Skin cancer can be caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or tanning beds. Prevention of skin cancer involves protecting the skin from UV radiation by wearing protective clothing and using sunscreen, as well as avoiding indoor tanning. 

When is it necessary to see a doctor?

If you have an unusual skin lesion or mole that is changing in shape or color, it's important to see a doctor to determine if it's cancerous and receive appropriate treatment to prevent further skin damage. Treatment for skin cancer may involve surgery, radiation therapy, or chemotherapy.
