What Exactly is it? Skin Cancer What Your Skin Does For You Symptoms of Skin Cancer Different Types of Skin Cancer Skin Cancer, also known as neoplasms, are skin growths with differing causes and varying degrees of malignancy. Changes in the skin, an abnormal growth, a sore that does not heal or heals slower than normal for you. The term "skin cancer" refers to three different conditions. From the least to the most dangerous, they are:
Basal Cell Carcinoma (or basal cell carcinoma epithelioma)

Squamous cell carcinoma (the first stage of which is called actinic keratosis)

Melanoma What is Skin Cancer? It protects the body against heat, sunlight, injury, and infection
It helps control body temperature
It stores water, fat, and vitamin D. Melanoma Skin Cancer Freezing

Biological therapy Treatment for Skin Cancer (General) Melanoma is a cancer that begins in the melanocytes. Because most of these cells still
make melanin, melanoma tumors are often brown or black. But this is not always the case, and melanomas can also appear pink, tan, or even white. What is Melanoma Skin Cancer? A basal cell carcinoma usually begins as a small, dome-shaped bump and is often covered by small, superficial blood vessels called telangiectases. The texture of such a spot is often shiny and translucent, sometimes referred to as "pearly." It is often hard to tell a basal cell carcinoma from a benign growth like a flesh-colored mole without performing a biopsy. Basal Cell Carcinoma Basal Cell Carcinoma Mohs Micrographic Surgery

Topical Medications Treatments for Basal Cell Carcinoma A cancer of a kind of epithelial cell, the squamous cell. These cells are in the epidermis of the skin. SCC is one of the main skin cancer forms. Along with occurring on the skin, SCC can occur in the lining of the digestive tract and lungs. SCC can also be a tissue cancer occurring in the lips, mouth, esophagus, urinary bladder, prostate, and lung. Squamous Cell Carcinoma The most often rapidly growing, non-tender red, purple, or skin colored bumps that are not painful or itchy. They are easily mistaken for a cyst or other type of cancer.
