Hide and Seek: Spotting 10 Possible Signs of Skin Cancer

Hide and Seek: Spotting 10 Possible Signs of Skin Cancer

Skin cancer affects thousands of people every year. Although it can be hereditary, the primary cause of this serious illness is the sun’s ultraviolet radiation, which is why putting sun block on our skin is definitely helpful. You can also decrease the risk of getting skin cancer by taking care of your skin and being aware of its signs.

Early detection of the signs can make skin cancer curable in most cases. That’s why it’s important that we give extra attention to the changes of our skin and be wary when we see something unusual. The later the illness gets detected, the more it may become incurable. To help you with that, here are 10 signs of skin cancer that you should be aware of.

Bumps on the skin

You may notice bumps on your skin from time to time, but you don’t normally think that they are cancerous, right? Some forms of skin cancer, such as basal cells, look like bumps. If there are bumps appearing on your skin, it is a good idea to have them checked by a doctor to be on the safe side.

Moles on the feet

Our feet are not usually exposed to the sun, but some types of cancer, like melanoma, can develop in areas where sunlight can go through. If you see moles on the sole of your feet or between toes, then have them checked right away. If for instance, the mole poses health risk, then you can have it removed. The average price to remove a mole is around $100 to $500 per mole, depending on the method used.

Lasting eczema

If a person has red skin that looks scaly, it can be eczema. Eczema can be treated with creams from the doctor. If it does not seem to get better with treatment, it can be skin cancer. If the redness is not going away, it is high time to go back to the doctor.

Bug bites that don’t heal

It is not uncommon to have bug bites during the summer. If you have those bites, they are typically gone after 2 to 3 days. However, if the bug bite does not heal or becomes a chronic wound, it may be skin cancer. If the bump is there for more than a month, then it should be checked out. Bug bites heal on their own, cancer doesn’t.

Bleeding Bumps

If there is a bleeding bump or mole on the skin, it is important to get it checked by a doctor right away. Moles don’t bleed. If there is something that easily bleeds on your skin, don’t wait for it to become worse. It should worry you and push you to seek medical help.

Moles that change

If a person has a mole or a freckle, and it begins to change shape, there may be an underlying health a problem. If the mole begins to change its shape, color, and/or size, then it is time to see a dermatologist. If a person is born with a mole, it will stay the same in his or her lifetime.

Waxy bumps

In some cases, skin cancer can initially appear as pale skin patches or waxy bumps. So, if you notice waxy bumps on your skin, then it is best to see a doctor immediately.

New scars

Scars can happen from accidents of falls. If new scars appear without explanation it is worth noticing. Aggressive basal cells can have an appearance that is similar to a scar. If there is no explanation for it, then it’s best to keep an eye on it. If the scar does not go away, get it examined.

Fast growing bumps

Bumps may appear on the body from time to time. But if there are bumps that keep on growing, it is possible that it is skin cancer. Moreover, pay special attention if these bumps are near areas that are usually exposed to the sun.

Discoloration

If the color of the skin is changing, then this can be a sign of skin cancer. Look for areas of the skin that appear to be changing color. Skin cancer cells may have a pinkish color to them. Aside from that, keep an eye on areas where they turn black or brown.
