About the disease

Skin cancer is a malignant growth on the skin and is usually localized to one area on the body.

Depending on the type of cells at its point of origin, skin cancer has 3 major types:

  • Basal cell carcinoma
  • Squamous cell carcinoma
  • Melanoma

The first type is the most common and the least dangerous of the three. In the USA alone, approximately 1 million people are diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma every year. Melanoma is the most dangerous type of skin cancer and is the most difficult to diagnose. Skin cancer is believed to be caused by such underlying factors as long-term ultraviolet exposure, radiation exposure and the HIV virus.

According to Medicine.Com, skin cancer is common among people with fair skin and blonde or red hair. This can be explained by the fact that fair skin lacks the protective pigment, melanin. Skin cancer most commonly appears on the face or neck, as these areas are exposed to the sun the most. Skin cancer appears as a growth on the skin, often on the nose or cheeks. If the growth is more than 2 cm in size and causes irritation that does not disappear over time, it is likely to be the first indicator of skin cancer.

Symptoms

  • A shiny or pink bump on the skin
  • Sores that do not heal for over 2 weeks
  • Red patches of skin, which can crust and are extremely dry
  • Yellow areas that look like scars
  • Weakness
  • Nausea
  • Weight loss

Diagnosis

  • During a general examination, the dermatologist will examine the patient’s skin under a special light to look for strange bumps or sores.
  • Laboratory tests, such as a skin biopsy, are used to confirm the diagnosis and to determine which type of cancer the patient has.

Treatment

  • Mohs micrographic surgery is used specifically for the treatment of skin cancer. It examines the skin layer by layer, to find malignant tissue. Once this has been identified, it is removed. This surgical procedure is minimally invasive, meaning healthy tissue is not damaged, and is usually performed using local anaesthetic. Both these factors mean the patient can make a relatively quick recovery.
  • Laser surgery uses a laser beam to resect malignant cells.
  • Cryosurgery kills malignant cells with extremely cold temperature.
  • Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses special light agents that can kill cancerous cells.
