Basal and Squamous Cell Carcinoma
Have you recently been diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma?
While melanoma remains the deadliest skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are surprisingly common skin cancers that can still cause significant health issues if left unchecked. Like with melanoma, both of these common skin cancers can be caused by excess exposure to UV rays without adequate skin protection.
If you haven’t been diagnosed with either of these skin cancers but you’re nervous you may be affected, keep an eye out for the following symptoms:
- A persistent sore or pimple-like lesion that does not heal for several weeks
- A new or shiny bump
- A red or pink patch
- A tender crusty growth
Twin Ports Dermatology takes skin cancers of all types seriously. We offer diagnosis and treatment for patients who may be affected by basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma.
