2. Is skin cancer curable?

Yes. For basal cell or squamous cell cancers, a cure is highly likely if detected and treated early. Melanoma, even though it can spread to other body parts quickly, is also highly curable if detected early and treated properly.

3. Where Does Skin Cancer Usually Develop?

It usually develops in any part of the body, which is exposed to the sun. But sometimes it is seen in the palm and sole, which receives very less exposure to the sun.

Skincancer

I have a scar on my right cheek from a large mole removed when I was three years old. It was itchy and the bumpy red part bled when scratched. Turns out it was Basal Cell Carcinoma.

Sun Tanning at a Tanning Salon is the safest way to naturally get your Vit. D and can actually prevent skin cancer by protecting you from sun damage by over exposure in the sun.

hi, i'm James Sagiao from Samoa, i'm posting a comment about skin cancer because my dad has skin cancer for like 2 to 3 years now. We've learned from skin cancer ever since my dad was infected. We are now aware of skin cancer and of the sun. Thanks James Sagiao from Samoa.....
