Skin Tumors, Facial Skin Tumors and Skin Cancers
Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) is not a typical cancer. Spreading to other organs does not happen. BCC does not cause death. It usually grows slowly. It damages the area. It may emerge in the form of new unexplained wounds, pale pink rounded masses or brown skin lesions on the face. The treatment is the surgical excision.
Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) This cancer is somewhat more aggressive than BCC. It grows faster. It usually occurs in the form of a wound with a middle ulcer. If the mass is big, it usually smells bad. Flat epithelium skin cancers primarily spread to the lymph nodes and can spread to distant organs lately. The treatment is the surgical excision. In the early stage surgery is sufficient. Other oncologic treatment protocols are applied for advanced tumors after surgical excision.
Malignant Melanoma (MM) One of the worst cancer types. It can even jump into internal organs early on. It may appear as color change of an old mole in the body or new mass with darkening. The treatment is the surgical.
When we have a new wound or little mass on the face.
Especially after the 40s, it is possible that is a skin tumor. The older we are, the greater the chance. Besides, being exposed to the sun for years and being white-skinned increases this risk. This skin tumor is probably called BCC. Patients usually think they have a new acne formation in their face, which will heal spontaneously. If you are not a teenager it is possibly a skin cancer.
Changes In Shape and Color Of The Moles
The sudden emergence of color changes, bleeding, growing, irregularity of the borders of a mole is a situation that should be taken seriously. You should immediately apply for a plastic surgery consultation.
Newly Developed Dark Colored Masses
Do not Expect Pain
Contrary to what you might think, skin cancers do not cause pain. Do not wait for the pain in your face or your body to refer to a doctor. You should not be a painless subject.
Do not Lose Time With Creams
Many doctors and even some dermatology doctors recommend antibiotic creams. Although this disease seems to be a very attractive solution, it is just a waste of time. Do not forget that when you have a person between the ages of 50 and 60 with a newly developing wound on the face, there is no wound at all. If it does, it is not a wound but a skin tumor. The treatment of tumors is surgical. So do not use cream, immediately apply to Plastic Surgery.
