What is Skin Cancer?

Cancer is uncontrolled growth of body cells. Skin cancer is one of the most common of human cancers. Skin cancer is an uncontrolled growth of skin cells in outer layers of the skin. If Skin cancer is untreated then it can spread from the outer skin layer into other tissues and organs.

Organ Info:
Epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin. On the top it mostly consists of scale-like cells that are called squamous cells. The round cells right under the squamous cells are known as the basal cells. And under the basal cells are melanocytes – these cells produce melanin that gives skin its color.

Anyone can develop a form of skin cancer but people with certain characteristics are more prone to it. Some of the characteristics fair skin complexion, family history of skin cancer, overexposure to the sun, early history of sunburns, large number of moles and atypical moles, and freckles.

Skin cancer could be 100 percent curable if detected in early stage before it spreads. For new growths or other changes in the skin should be reported to the doctor without any delay.
