Beat Cancer of the Skin What is skin cancer? Let's talk about this today because whenever we mention the word 'cancer' a fear comes over us and we panic or are scared to pieces of the end results. There are 2 positive aspects to skin cancer and that is that it develops outside of our bodies and we can take preventive action to reducing the risks of getting skin cancers. There are 3 major kinds of skin cancers. The first one is Basal cell carcinoma and is the most common as it is usually a small, maybe round, usually raised reddish spot. When detected early the possibilities of cure are great but definitely needs to be treated as an unwanted part of our skin. Squamous cell carcinoma is the second most common of skin cancers and usually shows up as a result of sun exposed areas. It is a slow grower and has a tendency to spread to other parts of the body and it is has a relation to actinic keratosis, a preliminary stage of a skin cancer. The cure rates of it are also good when taken care of when first noticed. Malignant Melanoma is the most dangerous one and is life-threatening to most. It's potential power will cause it to spread to other parts of ones body. This is usually in the form of a moles that is changing in size, color and maybe even quite black and possibly shiny as mine was. Early detection is the key for survival in this case. Other precancerous lesions sometimes can or have the potential of turning into cancerous condition so always check your skin for some different patterns and textures. Actinic Keratosis is a precancerous skin disease and nearly always occurs on sun exposed areas and looks totally harmless and usually rough and scaly in patches and you need to have that checked out also and it can develop into a skin cancer. Who is susceptible to skin cancers? those of us that are fair skinned, light complexion and those who sun burn quite easily and work outside without the proper long sleeves and a big brimmed hat. Take charge of your health matters to prevent skin cancers while you are young, don't sun bath and burn yourself outside on the beach or pool side, or for that matter in a tanning salon. A beautiful tan is not worth the ugly scar when the removal of a skin cancer of any kind needs to be removed from ones body. Take the time to visit a dermatologist office and see those with part of their nose, parts of their ears and holes in their arms and legs from over-doing ,being in the sun for extended periods of time. Is it worth it? I personally do not. My procedures were from working out in the sun and notÂ properly covered with long sleeved shirts and that big brimmed hat.
