Dermato-Oncology

Dermato-Oncology are cancers that arise from the skin. They occur due to the development of abnormal cells that can invade or spread to other parts of the body. There are three main types of skin cancers: basal-cell skin cancer (BCC)squamous-cell skin cancer (SCC) and melanoma. Melanomas are the most aggressive. Melanomas include signs like a mole that has changed in size, shape, colour, has irregular edges, has more than one colour, is itchy or bleeds. Greater than 90% of cases are caused by exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the Sun. This exposure increases the risk of all three main types of skin cancer. Exposure of skin has become harmful because with depletion of ozone layer and by exposure to ultraviolet radiation. For melanomas and basal-cell cancers exposure during childhood is particularly harmful. People with light skin are at higher risk. Treatment for skin cancer are generally by surgical and non-surgical removals but may less commonly involve radiation therapy or topical medications such as fluorouracil. Treatment of melanoma may involve some combination of surgeries.
