Skin cancer is on the rise. Keep an eye on your skin.
Do you have a pimple that never seems to heal?
Maybe you have had it for a couple months.
Head to your dermatologist to have it checked. It could basal cell carcinoma. It is a slow growing, easily treated cancer that appears in areas of the body that are exposed to the sun such as the face, neck, arm and hands. The doctor will do a biopsy on the suspicious pimple to determine if it is basal cell. If it is, a minor surgical procedure will remove it.
Here is a chart I have had for years. I have found it helpful for recognizing what a suspicious spot looks like.
Examine your skin frequently checking for anything that doesn't look quite right.
Get to your doctor if you notice a spot has changed in color or size.
Have your skin checked by a dermatologist yearly.
