It is possible to find skin cancer early. This cancer begins where we can see it. The first sign may be a slowly growing bump, a changing mole, or a dry and scaly rough patch.
When treated before it spreads, most skin cancers can be cured. Even melanoma, a type of skin cancer that can spread quickly, is curable when treated early.
The key to finding skin cancer early is to know your skin. The following pictures show you some of the many ways that skin cancer can appear on the skin. If you notice a spot or lump that is growing, bleeding, or changing, you should make an appointment to see our dermatologists.
