Skin Cancer

Skin cancer can be most developed from too much exposure from the sun's ultra violet rays and some artificial stuff and one of them is over tanning. There's a lot of skin cancer diagnosed each year both melanoma and none melanoma. What is melanoma? This is a kind of cancer that its already metastatic and the tumor is already in a high risk that creates dark pigments in the skin. None melanoma occurred in certain area such as ears , necks,faces and other more due to chronic exposure from the sun. There are two types of skin cancer basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.

Basal cell carcinoma- the appearance is small bump with doom shape. The blood vessels is very visible in the surface..it is translucent in color. Squamous cell carcinoma appears like a small pimple that seems like it don't go away but stay forever and might bleed anytime. This type of cancers are both destructive and can be so risky and lead to death when its not treated early and properly. Simply tips lets try to refrain ourselves of too much exposure to the sun and if possible lets use lotion that has sun protection. Remember protection has been always better than cure.....
