What is Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the skin.
Cancer that only affects cells in the skin’s top layer is called superficial cancer.
Cancer that spreads deeply into the skin or to other parts of the body is known as invasive cancer.
Skin cancer symptoms
Skin cancers don’t all look the same, but there are some signs to look out for:
- a spot that is different from other spots on the skin
- a spot, mole or freckle that has changed in size, shape or colour
- a sore that doesn’t heal
- a spot that bleeds.
