Skin Cancer – Non Melanoma

SKIN CANCER IN SOUTH FLORIDA

Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) (300,000 to 400,000 cases per year)
This is by far the most common form of skin cancer. While reviewing the photos, notice the “pearly” or “shiny” quality of these skin tumors; this is characteristic. These lesions occur anywhere on the body, but are most common on sun exposed areas (face, arms, and legs).

 

Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) (80,000 to 100,000 cases per year)
This is the second most common form of skin cancer. These lesions commonly occur on the face, scalp, lips or ears. A good rule of thumb is that a sore that doesn’t heal (for more than a month) should be considered a skin cancer until proven otherwise.
