At what age does skin cancer typically occur?
People are more susceptible to skin cancer with age and overall sun exposure throughout their lifetime.
Can a dermatologist tell if you have skin cancer?
Yes, in fact, people who are at high risk of skin cancer due to family history or personal history of skin disease should see a dermatologist for regular checkups to detect skin cancer before it advances too severely.
Can a dry patch of skin be cancer?
If the only symptom you have is dry, perhaps scaly skin, its most likely not cancerous. However, dry, hard skin is a symptom of some skin cancers, so you should see a dermatologist if youre concerned.
Can a skin cancer look like a pimple?
Yes, but not all pimples are skin cancer. Other symptoms that accompany skin cancer are pain, sudden changes in texture, color, or discharge of a pimple, and spreading of the symptoms.
Can skin cancer go away by itself?
No, if a patch of skin is cancerous, it will continue to be cancerous until the tissue is removed via surgery or other treatment.
Can skin cancer show up suddenly?
Yes, in fact, sudden changes in your skin are major indicators of skin cancer in most cases.
Can you have skin cancer for years and not know?
Yes. Some skin cancers develop gradually and only become noticeable with sudden or dramatic changes to the skins look or sensation.
Can you spread skin cancer by picking it?
While unlikely, skin cancer can spread when you manipulate the area without the supervision of a dermatologist.
Do you see an oncologist for skin cancer?
Typically you only need to see a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment of most skin cancers.
Does skin cancer hurt to the touch?
Pain is a common and often motivating factor when deciding to go to a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. However, not all skin cancers are overtly painful to the touch, so if youre concerned about a patch of skin, dont wait for it to start hurting to get examined.
