Types of Skin Cancer

A Basal Cell Carcinoma presents itself as a raised lump on the head, neck or shoulders. It can become cracked and bleed and can look like a sore in appearance. This type of Skin Cancer is easiest to treat.

A Squamous Cell Carcinoma is usually a red, thickened patch on a piece of skin exposed to the sun.

A Melanoma is a brown legion. Symptoms of having Melanoma are having a new mole appear or change in the appearance of an existing mole.

Skin Cancer is caused by, among other things, exposure to sunlight, particularly the ultraviolet (UV) rays, and 80 per cent of cases are therefore preventable.

The risk of developing Skin Cancer is increased following episodes of sunburn, although the there may be a delay of many years before the cancer appears.

A small number of cases are caused by hereditary conditions, but they are also triggered by exposure to sun rays. Sun beds can also cause Skin Cancer.

Treatment for Skin Cancer

  • Surgery is the standard treatment for Mole Cancer. The extent of the procedure is determined by the thickness of the tumour.
  • It is necessary to remove not only the tumour, but also some of the normal skin around it, and the fatty tissue beneath it.

If there are signs that the Cancer has spread to nearby lymph nodes, these will also be removed, if it is technically possible.

Medical treatment is used in cases where the Cancer has spread to other parts of the body, and surgery is not possible. Chemotherapy and radiotherapy may also be used.
