What are symptoms of skin cancer?

There are different types of skin cancer. Each type has different symptoms and signs. This article will talk about symptoms of common skin cancers.

Symptoms of common skin cancers:

  • Squamous cell carcinoma. It often affects the ears, face, and hands. It presents itself as a crusted flat lesion, or a firm nodule in red color.
  • Basal cell carcinoma. This type of cancer mainly develops on the face or neck. It looks like a waxy or white raised area, or a brown scar-like lesion, or a smooth lesion with no color.
