Skin cancer is a condition where one type of cell grows uncontrolled in a disorganized fashion, disrupting and replacing normal tissues and their functions. There are three main forms of skin cancer — Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and Melanoma. The first two are curable. Melanoma is curable if detected early, but can be fatal if it spreads. Moles that have irregular borders, varied colors, and recent enlargement should be examined by a dermatologist.
Basal Cell Carcinoma
Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most common form of skin cancer. More than two million cases of this skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year.
