What are these marks on my face? They're so big I think I'm going to have to go to the doctor.
The next day
This is serious sir! These are signs of Squamous cell carcinoma. This is a type of skin cancer
What!!! I have skin cancer? No way.
Let me tell you some things about skin cancer. There 3 types of skin cancer. There's Basal cell carcinoma, Squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. You have Squamous cell carcinoma. If not treated, these large brown splotches can grow large and spread to internal organs.
Am I going to be Okay?
In Basal cell carcinoma, light pink or skin colored bumps start to appear on the face, neck, or the back of your hands. They grow very slowly and are almost never fatal. In squamous cell carcinoma, Large brown splotches start to appear on the head, neck, the back of your hands, or in women, the lower leg.
Please tell me something about these types of skin cancers.
Melanoma is the deadliest. You need to know the ABCDE's of melanoma in order see the appearance. A stands for Asymmetry. Most melanomas are asymmetrical. B stands for border. They have a uneven border. C stands for color. Some melanomas have multiple colors which is a warning sign. But some might have different shades of brown, tan, or black. D stands for Diameter. If the mole is the size of a pencil eraser, then it is a warning sign. E stands for evolving. Any change in size, shape, or color is a warning sign for melanoma.
