Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer. Skin cancer begins in the top layer of skin cells (epidermis). Though it’s harmless when compared to the other forms of cancer, some types of skin cancer are very fatal. An aggressive form of skin cancer which spreads rapidly over the body is called melanoma. However, this type of skin cancer is rare. Other types of skin cancer referred to as non-melanoma skin cancer and are further classified as basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma.
The most common cause of skin cancer is over exposure to the sun or other ultraviolet light. However, other factors such as exposure to toxic substances and radiations in work place or a weakened immune system may also increase the risk of developing skin cancer.
Skin cancer shares symptoms with some other diseases which can lead to misdiagnosis.
lumps under the skin may be misdiagnosed as pimples, cysts or tumour.
Changes in the skin's colour or conditionmay be misdiagnosed as a skin infection or another non-cancerous symptom.
