The idea about today’s blog came after talking to a lady I know who was recently diagnosed and treated for skin cancer. In today’s blog I put together few questions about skin cancer.
When she pointed out a tiny mole on her face to her beautician , she was adviced to exfoliate over it every day.
Let’s pinpoint some facts which may help you self diagnose; and remember, when in doubt, visit your GP.
Skin cancer usually appears over an exposed area of the skin like face, the scalp of the bold men and a skin injury like a burn scar.
(My dermatology teacher explained that where the skin is already scarred, there is a favourable area for skin cancer, because the scarred skin is already abnormal )
Here are some questions to ask yourself:
Is it a new mole ?
Is it larger in size then the last time you checked?
Is it’s shape asymmetric ?
Has it changed its shape?
Has it changed its colour?
Is it a cyst under the skin which grew larger lately?
If you answer yes to few of the questions, I would advise to let your GP know.
It may be some benign mole, but is always better to be safe then sorry.
Salon Corina’s skin consultation cover any questions you may have about your face.
I am so passionate about skin cancer, that I am willing to do a talk about the subject.
