It is common knowledge that,
- Skin Cancer is the most common form of Cancer in the world.
- Most people don’t know how to apply Sun block Creams and SPF properly. Most people would not even admit it or ask for directions.
- Skin Cancer will continue to grow over the next decade. Why? Because the sun is relentless and won’t go away. Plus, we won’t stop abusing the ozone layer and continue to make pathways for UV ray to reach us.
Causes of Skin Cancer.
Here are a few of the things that might increase your chance of getting skin cancer;
- Exposure to UV Rays.
- Using tanning beds frequently.
- Fair skin, especially if you are a red head or a blonde.
- Having immune system weakening diseases like HIV or Lymphoma.
- A relative with skin cancer.
- Bad scars or burns that have been exposed to UV Rays in one way or another.
- Getting many x-ray treatments (over the years).
There are three most basic types of skin cancers;
- Basal Cell Carcinoma
- Squamous Cell Carcinoma
How to spot the disease.
Now we know how fatal this disease is and the reason behind its occurrence and its types, still most of us are clueless as to how to spot it since all of their symptoms usually overlap. Although that doesn’t really matter because whatever you find, you better consult a doctor about it. Better safe than sorry, eh?
So go and see the doctor if;
- Watch out for the moles.
- Is the mole growing? Is it bigger than the eraser of a pencil? If it is then you know the drill.
- If is it cut in half, are both sides equal? If not then, ahem.
- Do they bleed or hurt? If they so then you better see a doctor immediately.
- If the edges are irregular or jagged, then go see a doctor. Normal moles are smooth, not irregular.
- If you see bruises on your feet that refuse to heal.
- If you have pimples on your skin that refuse to go away.
- If you have a clear, see through, pimple like bump on sun-exposed skin that has been there for a month or so, it might not be a pimple.
- If you have a sore in your mouth that is refusing to heal since a long time, it is better that you get it checked out.
- If you are a smoker and have a non-healing sore that has taken up residence in your mouth, you might be suffering from SSC.
- Look under your finger and toe nails for black or brown streaks.
- If your skin has starting becoming scaly or crusty and tropical creams are no help at all, it’s time to visit a doctor.
