Skin Cancer

15 Skin Cancer 1

Skin Cancer is the most common cancer that affects humans. Exposed skin without sunblock is more susceptible to skin cancer, and the severity of cancer may vary.

Basal Cell Carcinomas (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinomas (SCC), and Melanoma are the most common types of skin cancer. Skin cancers such as BCC are the least aggressive. It does not spread to other parts of the body in most cases, but it can grow slowly and cause anatomical and functional problems if not treated in time. SCC, on the other hand, is more aggressive and can spread to other parts of the body, particularly the lymph nodes that affects the prognosis.
A significant number of factors contribute to the development of skin cancer, including sun exposure, ageing, skin type, carcinogen exposure, immunosuppression, genetic mutations, chronic wounds, radiation exposure and viral infections.

s6 Skin Cancer 3 A few symptoms, such as swelling, bruising, numbness and discomfort, can be controlled with medications and certain posture adjustments. You will receive specific post-op instructions from Dr Khan before and after surgery. According to the type of skin cancer, the extent of surgery, and whether any additional non-surgical treatments are required (e.g. radiotherapy, chemotherapy, immunotherapy), the follow-up may range from weeks to years.Generally, it is not recommended to swim in a pool, ocean, or Jacuzzi when stitches are in. Using a cold pack for 5-15 minutes every hour for the first eight to 24 hours after surgery can help with the swelling for the first day or two after surgery. For wounds around the mouth or cheek areas, limiting hot foods, hot drinks, and heavy chewing for 48 hours may help reduce post-operative bleeding.Till the wound is fully healed, patients are advised not to apply makeup or powder directly on a fresh wound.
