There are 3 types of skin cancer that are common: Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC or Rodent Ulcer), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and Melanoma.
Basal cell Carcinomas are by far the most common form of skin cancer (80% of all skin cancers). Fair skin and chronic sun exposure are both important factors in the development of BCCs, which typically presents as a small nodule or ulcer. BCCs very rarely spread in the body but can cause significant problems by invading and destroying surrounding tissues.
Squamous Cell carcinomas, the second most common form of skin cancer, can occur on any part of the body and is most common on areas that are exposed to sun, such as face, ears, and the back of your hands. SCC can be cured if it is detected early and appropriate treatment undertaken.
Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer and has the ability to spread in other parts of the body. The majority of melanomas are black or brown, but some can be skin-coloured or pink. Early detection and appropriate skin cancer treatment is paramount for a favorable outcome.
