Skin cancers most commonly present as one of the following three types:
Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer which may appear suddenly or slowly develop from an existing mole. They vary in size, colour or shape and may standout or blend in with other spots on the skin.
SCC – Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Squamous Cell Carcinomas commonly occur on areas of skin that have had a long history of sun exposure, such as the face, scalp and hands. They usually begin as scaly, red spots, which may later develop into tender, thick, dry lumps in more advanced cases.
BCC – Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal Cell Carcinoma(BCC), are the most common type of non Melanoma skin cancer and frequently appear as flat or raised pink shiny spots mostly on the head and neck, chest or back.
