Skin cancer treatment is a type of cancer that is relatively easier to treat and less invasive than other cancer types such as lung cancer or pancreatic cancer. However, just like in any other type of cancer, it is important to detect cancer before it progresses into an advanced stage.
There are lots of different kinds of skin cancer. Apart from the location where cancer develops, the feature they share is the cause of skin cancer, which is generally an overt exposure to the sun. Skin cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer, affecting hundreds of thousands of patients every year. Fortunately, most skin cancers can be easily treated. There are two main types of skin cancer:
• Non-melanoma skin cancers – these cases are relatively more easily treated that include basal cell cancer, squamous skin cancer. These skin cancers are usually concentrated on the outside layers of skin and do not reach deeper, at least not in the first stages.
• Melanoma skin cancers – these kinds of skin cancer are more malign because of their possibility to grow inwards, easily affecting the patient’s other organs.
Skin cancer can be easily detected by the patients, if they pay attention to their skin, especially the parts that are exposed to the sun. The patients who sunbath extensively are at high risk of having skin cancer. However, it is known that sunbathing in later hours (after 3 pm) or using sun cream, minimalizes the risk of skin cancer. Abnormal skin change is one of the most common symptoms of skin cancer. Skin cancer can be diagnosed by medical examination and biopsy.
