Most types of skin cancer are relatively favorable. People die from this disease less and less, since skin tumors are in plain view and can be detected on time. To successfully get rid of the disease, it should be timely diagnosed. This can be done in the best clinics in the world.

Early diagnostics 

The signs of skin cancer appear early and can be clearly visible upon closer examination. Therefore, most cases can be detected in the early stages and successfully cured. To timely detect skin cancer, one should:

  1. Perform self-diagnostics.
  2. In case of detection of suspicious formations, consult a doctor to undergo the professional diagnostics. 

You should inspect your skin 1 time per month. Regular examinations will allow you to understand what formations on the body already exist, what size they have, what new ones appeared, how existing ones have changed. Self-examinations are especially important for people at risk: 

  • large number of moles on the body;
  • frequent or severe insolation (tanning); 
  • burdened heredity (cases of skin cancer in the family); 
  • weak immunity or use of immunosuppressants. 

You only need your own eyes and a mirror. Someone close to you will help examine your skin in places that are difficult to access for self-examination. Do not forget to examine the following areas of the skin:

  • under the breast;
  • armpits;
  • between fingers;
  • under the nails;
  • behind the ears;
  • in the folds of the anogenital zone;
  • on the scalp.

Symptoms 

It is quite obvious where to look for, but you should also understand what to look for. Skin cancer mostly develops in the area affected by sunlight. The main signs of a malignant tumor include: 

  • a new spot or bulge on the skin, its growth in dynamics (the spot became larger when re-examined after 1 month);
  • a bleeding wound, especially if it does not heal for weeks; 
  • a rough spot with scales that crusts over; 
  • vegetation (warty growths);
  • change in size, shape, asymmetry of an existing mole, its uneven color, fuzzy borders. 

Basal cell skin cancer can have the following manifestations: 

  • a flat yellow formation resembling a scar; 
  • a red and itchy spot that rises above the level of the skin; 
  • unevenly colored plaques with uneven relief; 
  • pink vegetations having a branched network of vessels inside; 
  • open ulcers that do not heal, or ulcerate again after healing. 

Squamous cell carcinoma may look similar. Another option is the formation of grouped nodules that merge. They have a higher level relative to the skin surface on the periphery than in the center.

Diagnosis confirmation 

A doctor examines a suspicious formation and evaluates the symptoms. If he considers the skin changes to be those that show signs of a malignant tumor, he will decide to perform a biopsy. The procedure involves a total or partial removal of the neoplasm, or obtaining a fragment of it with a needle. Once the material is examined, the laboratory will give a conclusion whether it is cancer or not.

Biopsy options: 

  • tangential biopsy – the doctor shaves off a thin layer of the upper part of the tumor (after the procedure, the doctor will stop bleeding with a laser or electrocoagulation); 
  • trephine biopsy – a thick needle is inserted into the neoplasm and rotated, after which it is removed, whereas a column of tissue remains inside;
  • incisional biopsy – it can almost never be used for skin cancer. The tumor is resected (partially removed), while the fragment is sent for histological examination;
  • excisional biopsy – it involves removal of the entire tumor before the establishment of final diagnosis, and later it will be examined. 

With the exception of melanoma, skin cancer can rarely spread metastasis. Nonetheless, this can sometimes happen in advanced cases. Should the lymph nodes near the tumor be enlarged, the doctor may decide to conduct a sentinel lymph node biopsy. This is the first node, to which lymph flows from the area of the neoplasm.

A lymph node biopsy can be performed using one of two options: 

  • fine needle aspiration involves the insertion of the needle, after which there will be created a negative local pressure in the aspirator (the procedure resembles a blood sampling from a vein);
  • excisional biopsy can be used if the node is located close to the surface of the skin, or with a negative aspiration biopsy, when the doctor still has doubts.

As a rule, skin tumors can be detected in the early stages and immediately removed using cryosurgery, electrocoagulation or conventional surgery. The pathology can progress to stage 3-4 very rarely. In these cases, the problem area can be examined using CT or MRI scan to clarify the shape, size of the tumor, detect all metastatic foci.
