Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. You should be regularly getting your skin checked by a dermatologist or other skin cancer expert in Atlanta on a regular or annual basis. It’s also important that you’re able to recognize suspicious lumps, bumps, spots, sores, or other marks on your own skin. Doing this will provide you with early diagnosis and greatly improve your chances of getting it cured.
Basal and Squamous Cell Skin Cancer
These types of cancer are the most common and very treatable. Typically, basal and squamous cell skin can are found in areas of the body that are often exposed to the sun, for example, the neck, head, and arms. However, they can occur elsewhere.
Melanoma Skin Cancer
Melanoma is a less common type of skin cancer but is more serious because it’s very likely to grow and spread. Melanoma tumors are usually brown or black in color due to their production of melanin. However, it’s not uncommon to have pink, tan, or even white melanomas.
Merkel Cell Skin Cancer
Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) is a rare type of skin cancer that can spread to other parts of the body. MCC grows quickly and can be hard to treat, making it one of the most dangerous skin cancers.
