Skin cancer is one of the most dominating cancers around the world. We often tend to ignore the daunting signs that rule our body and may later lead to some severe health-damaging consequences. You might have an idea what destruction does cancer wreaks on your body.
However, skin cancer can be considered as the only type of cancer that is detectable and treatable in early stages. In order to get an edge over this disease, here are the six signs that you should watch out for:
A Vertical Dark Streak On Your Nail:
Melanomas or dark streaks can develop around the nail normally, however cancer can occur as a pigmented dark streak on your nail or toe nail, which may later spread to livers. Something remotely similar to a blood blister on the base of nail can also lead to something as big as skin cancer.
An Ugly ‘Mole’:
You should keep on a check that the moles around your body are symmetrical to the normal ones, else if they are any different you should get yourself checked immediately. Keep in mind that these moles can develop into a skin cancer, especially when on foot.
An Unbudging Spot:
Some cancers appear through a spot that won’t go away or will occur in similar place time and again. If this is the case with you, remember that particular place is becoming a home ground of cancer.
Melanomas, other than nails, can also appear on your eyes. It is alarming to note that the symptoms of it will never appear until and unless you go through an eye exam.
Pigmentation Around Mole Scar:
If you had a mole removed due to any such indication, and a pigmented scar appears in place of it. Get it immediately checked as this pigmentation is the indicator of cancer.
Black Spot Inside Your Cheek:
Among the others, cheek is also that one places where you can get melanoma, leading to skin cancer. Other than that, vagina, anal region and nasal cavity spots and scars may also be the cause of skin cancer.
