Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is a type of skin cancer. It is the most common form of any cancer diagnosed in the U.S. and accounts for 80% of all skin cancers. BCC appears on areas of the body that have had the most sun exposure. This includes the face, ears, scalp, back of the neck, and back of the arms and hands. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is relatively easy to detect. If it is found early, treatment is simple and successful.
Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is a type of skin cancer that appears on sun-damaged skin. It is found most commonly on part of the body where the skin is exposed to the sun, including the scalp, upper rim of the ear, the face, lips, and shoulders.
Melanoma is a type of skin cancer. It is the most serious type of skin cancer because melanomas have a tendency to spread quickly to other parts of the body (metastasize). Melanoma begins when melanocytes (pigment cells) in the skin become more abnormal and start to divide without control or order. These abnormal cells can invade and destroy the normal cells around them. The abnormal cells form a growth of malignant tissue (a cancerous tumor) on the surface of the skin.
