Skin cancer is by far the most common type of cancer. If you know what to look for, you can spot warning signs of skin cancer early. Finding it early, when it’s small and has not spread, makes skin cancer much easier to treat.

Some doctors and other health care professionals include skin exams as part of routine health check-ups. “By being familiar with your own skin markings, like moles, freckles and blemishes, you’re likely to notice any changes.” His recommendation: Have your skin checked yearly by a physician or dermatologist, and check your own skin for signs of skin cancer by using a mirror every month. WEDNESDAY, June 28, 2017 (HealthDay News)—With skin cancer the most common type of cancer in the United States, you should learn to spot its early signs, a cancer doctor says. “Early detection is key. When detected early, most skin cancers may be effectively treated and are often curable,” said Dr.

Jeffrey Farma, a surgical oncologist at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. To recognize skin cancer, start by examining your body for any spots, moles, or bumps. Then, look closely at these spots for signs that they may be cancerous. Pay attention to any changes in your skin, and have them evaluated by a healthcare professional.

You should speak to your doctor for an official diagnosis. Signs and Symptoms of Melanoma Skin Cancer Unusual moles, sores, lumps, blemishes, markings, or changes in the way an area of the skin looks or feels may be a sign of melanoma or another type of skin cancer, or a warning that it might occur. Being able to identify the signs of skin cancer is vital–because what might look like a simple, unassuming mole might already be the next manifestation of a tumor that can easily spread inside the body and cause problems down the road.

When melanoma is brought into the picture, they also stand the chance of appearing like skin markings or. Frequently, two or more of these warning signs are visible in a BCC tumor. An open sore that does not heal, and may bleed, ooze or crust.

The sore might persist for weeks, or appear to heal and then come back. A reddish patch or irritated area, on the face, chest, shoulder, arm or leg that may crust, itch, hurt or cause no discomfort.

Jeffrey Farma, a surgical oncologist at Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. To identify early signs of skin cancer, the American Cancer Society recommends using the ABCDE guide: A stands for Asymmetry – one side of a mole or other blemish on the skin doesn’t match the other side B stands for Border – the border is irregular, ragged-looking or blurry. While you may not feel any symptoms early on, changes to your skin’s appearance, even with small moles or spots, can be early signs of skin cancer.

It’s important that you do all-over skin.

  • I have a mole that’s nearly very black and there’s an out line brown around it it’s a circle but the size is smaller then a pencil rubber

  • I’m 35 years old with a history of abnormal moles. I’m fair skinned with green eyes, also I’ve had 3 moles removed in the past that were questionable one when I was 16 and the other 2 just 3 years ago… I also have a family history of malignant melanoma my mom’s brother ( my uncle) died back in 2011 of melanoma that metastised to his lungs, liver and brain. I also have a first cousin who had found his melanoma early enough that it was cut out and he is fine today. My concern is a mole on my left lower jaw that has irregular borders and sometimes is bothersome and a small mole on my right calf that has me very concerned it itches often and has also grown in diameter, not much but is also raised when originally it was not! Should I be concerned enough to call my dermatologist?

  • Ok so I have this mole, it has all of a sudden been cracking and pieces of it have been starting to fall of, ik its disgusting, i looked at it and its still the same shape but one part of it is kind of grayish idk if that’s because its dry or something like that, also my doctors have kept track of the mole should I be worried? The mole also gets itchy at times and I pretty sure I’ve had it since birth

  • I have a cyst looking bump under my nose and I’ve actually tried cutting it open and its hard and it rolls very little but I have to apply slot of pressure that hurts quite a bit and it’s been there for a weak and at first i just felt it but couldn’t see with my eyes now it’s a clear bump about half the size of a number 2 pencil eraser width wise and nowhere near the height should I be concerned

  • I noticed a white lump which is hard to touch but doesn’t hurt a year back,ignored it till now it started getting all pink and pains a little if pressed hard, dunno if it is melanoma or not if anyone got any idea olz do letmme knw as much fckin scared lol

  • My big sister has melanoma. I love her so much, she’s like my super hero. I pray for her more than I pray for myself. I thank God for my dad, for giving me such beautiful creatures. When you are the baby girl of so many siblings you never grow up to them. They always see you as that little girl.
    Praying for her health every single day.❤️

  • I think i have skin cancer i work at a warehouse another coworker confimed she had same bumps as me she said it was cancer i have nasty wart looking stuff on my face
