What is Skin Cancer?

Description of the disease

Skin cancer is a malignant disease that begins in the skin cells. It can develop from various types of skin cells and have different disease variants.


  • Basal cell carcinoma

The main cause of skin cancer is excessive ultraviolet radiation, including sunlight and tanning beds. Genetic predisposition may also play a role in the development of the disease.


To diagnose skin cancer, a doctor examines the skin and may perform a biopsy to check for cancer cells.


Treatment of skin cancer may include surgical removal of the tumor, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy in the case of advanced cancer.


  • Avoiding excessive ultraviolet radiation
