What is Skin Cancer?

Skin cancer occurs when abnormal cells grow uncontrollably in the skin. It is mainly caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or tanning beds. There are several types of skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

Understanding the Risks

Excessive sun exposure, a history of sunburns, a weakened immune system, and a family history of skin cancer are all risk factors for developing skin cancer. It’s crucial to be aware of these risks and take preventive measures to protect your skin.

Symptoms of Skin Cancer

Common symptoms of skin cancer include changes in the size, shape, or color of moles or spots on the skin, as well as new growths or sores that don’t heal. If you notice any unusual changes on your skin, it’s essential to consult a qualified healthcare professional promptly.
