Skin cancer occurs when abnormal skin cells begin to grow without stopping. Even though it is a serious condition, skin cancer rarely kills people because it is usually treatable if detected early enough. It can appear anywhere on the skin, but it usually caused by high levels of exposure to UV light from the sun, and therefore usually appears on the face, hands, neck and arms.
It is one of the most common forms of cancer in the UK. There are different types of skin cancer. Malignant melanoma usually manifests as an abnormal mole before spreading across the body. Non-melanoma skin cancer, which usually appears as a new lump, a scab that doesn’t heal, or a crusty raised area of the skin, is the most common type of skin cancer.
