Disease, sometimes leading to skin cancer

Disease, sometimes leading to skin cancerBy early detection of all skin cancers - including terrifying each melanoma is easily treatable, but based on my experience I can say that the treatment of cancer, even at a very early stage rather unpleasant. You can reduce your risk, carefully watching benign, but alarming changes in the condition of the skin that are easy to fix. PRECANCEROUS SKIN CONDITION Pink scaly patches on the skin area exposed to the sun - usually on the face or neck, is often so called actinic-keratosis. In men it is more often than women, appears on the ears. The skin surface to the touch may seem rude, much less - like a wart or convex; spots small, can be spread widely enough. In 5-10% of cases they are reborn into squamous cell skin cancer. Larger and thick red plaques with prominent large scales are called "disease Bowen". This disease most often affects sun exposed skin of older white people. It is less common, but more pronounced than actinic keratosis, and often misleading doctors taking him for psoriasis or eczema. May have to remind the doctor that psoriasis is rarely manifests itself in the form of one of the affected area and eczema usually itches. About 5% of cases of Bowen end with the development of squamous cell skin cancer. HARMLESS AND SINISTER BIRTHMARKS Fear of moles, although to a lesser extent than the fear of AIDS, makes appeal to many doctors in General healthy men. Everyone knows that growing or darkening nevus can represent a terrible and often fatal malignant disease is melanoma, so doctors often remove the obviously harmless moles just to calm patients down. Remove all the moles is almost impossible, as the person it is an average of about forty. Nevus consists of a ball of cells, among which most of the melanocytes (the cells that create pigment of the skin). Their color varies from grey to black color of tan and dark brown in the middle of colours; black color is not always an ominous sign. The pigmentation is generally not necessary - many moles are skin color. Forms as diverse as the colors from the flat spot to the obvious buttons, and the surface may be smooth or rough. Some grow hair is not alarming sign. Moles are not the result of solar radiation, but occur most frequently on exposed to the sun the skin and rarely on the buttocks, the inner parts of the arms and other protected areas. Newborn moles or no, or very few; they begin to receive six months of life and continue to grow in numbers until the person 20-25 years. Later new moles appear little, and already with age, grow old and fade (after 50 years). To 80 years of moles disappear (this does not apply to other pigmented spots on the skin). The signs of benign moles: uniform color, smooth, flat border, not changing color and size. Signs that should cause concern: increase, change of color (including red, white, blue and black) and any changes to the structure of the surface - cracking, formation of scales, expiration fluid, bleeding or thickening. Color spots at the border of the moles are considered to be particularly ominous sign. Benign moles are usually grow slower, but often also grow and become convex. Moreover, if you long to look at any birthmark, she eventually you will feel very unpleasant and suspicious. In this case, better go to the doctor and ask what to do and when to come for the next inspection..
