Skin Cancer Types

Skin cancer is a cancer derived from skin cells. In the majority of patients it grows locally and never spreads to distant sites, but if ignored or not treated promptly most skin cancers can eventually metastasis or spread to distant parts of the body.

The main types of skin cancers are Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and melanoma. By far the most common skin cancer is BCC, the majority of which are found on the face, the part of the body which is exposed to the sun the most.
