Pre Skin Cancer

General Information, Signs & Symptoms, And Treatment Of The Pre Skin Cancer Condition

For Individuals who are always exposed under the harsh sunlight, you better check this article from top to bottom and see how you can be at great risk from having a pre skin cancer condition that is a form of a skin lesion.

As the word implies, the problem of your skin is NOT YET considered as a skin cancer, but it is a type of condition that can lead towards the said disease eventually, if it is left untreated.

Common signs and symptoms of a pre cancerous skin type:

  • You are developing tiny rough spot that can sometimes be thick and crusty. These spots are called actinic keratosis, or often called as solar keratosis, or even senile keratosis. People develop this kind of skin patches after being exposed under the sun for a number of hours.

  • Rough skin.

  • Red patches.

  • Scaly patches.

  • Development of moles.

  • Freckles

  • Skin darkened spots due to over exposure from the sun.

If you aren’t sure if you are possibly suffering from a pre skin cancer disorder, you may want to consider seeking a professional advice from a skin doctor in order to diagnose your pre cancer condition and see what is the most effective medication or treatment that can be done for the prevention of the said problem.

The doctor may perform a thorough screening of your skin in order to check if there are any signs of the following:

  1. Basal cell carcinoma

  2. Squamous cell carcinoma

  3. Malignant melanoma

What are the most common types of treatments for pre skin cancer?

Liquid Nitrogen – this is an agent mostly used by professionals to treat minor types of skin cancer. The procedure is actually called – Cryosurgery. The liquid nitrogen is dropped on the very spot where the infection is, and that particular spot will then quickly dry out, making the excess skin fall off or perhaps can be removed by gentle scraping.

Topical Medication – You can also purchase over the counter creams or liquid solution that can be used to treat pre skin cancer problems. The cream is rubbed against the skin for several times a day, or as prescribed by your doctor.

Use of chemicals – by using certain types of chemicals, the pre cancer skin may be easily removed from drying out. Only a professional doctor can facilitate this, as the use of a local anesthesia is a must in order for our body to tolerate the pain of the procedure.

Laser – this is another form of procedure that can be done in order to get rid of the unwanted scales and patches. However, this procedure is very complicated and dangerous, that is why professionals only consider it, if any of the procedure is not working anymore.

There may be other types of procedures and treatments that can be used for people who have pre skin cancer condition. However, it is still highly recommended to seek a professional advice if in case you are showing any signs of the said condition.

Melanomas And Why Not To Ignore Them

By Richard Poupart
I had an itchy mole on my right shoulder that I couldn't see but seemed to warrant a call on my local doctor. He took one look at it and arranged for me to see a surgeon in the local hospital. A couple of days later I was having a bi-lingual conversation in French and English about rugby football while it felt as though the surgeon was excavating deep into my shoulder. The biopsy proved positive so I was glad to have got rid of that one.
