"Skin Cancer: Understanding the Risks, Symptoms, and Treatment Options with a Dermatologist"

I have witnessed the devasting impact of skin cancer and the significance of early detection and efficient treatment as a dermatologist practicing in our hospitals. For the diagnosis and management of skin cancer, our hospitals use a holistic approach, ensuring that patients get the best care available.

Millions of individuals worldwide are impacted by skin cancer each year, making it the most prevalent type of cancer. Early skin cancer detection is crucial since prompt treatment can significantly improve the likelihood of a successful recovery.

Skin cancer develops when skin cells go through malignant alterations and increase out of control. Melanoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and basal cell carcinoma are the three main kinds of skin cancer.

  • The most prevalent type of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma, often affects the head, neck, and upper body. Typically, it presents as a little flesh-colored or pearly lump, a flat, scaly region, or a bleeding area.
  • Another typical type of skin cancer that affects the skin of the face, neck, arms, and hands is squamous cell carcinoma. It could appear as a solid, elevated lump or a reddish, scaly patch.
  • Melanoma, the most severe type of skin cancer, develops when the skin's pigment-producing cells turn malignant. Although it can appear anywhere on the body, women and men are likelier to have it on their legs or backs.


I advise all patients to seek shade, wear protective clothing, and use broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect their skin from damaging ultraviolet (UV) radiation. I am a dermatologist who works in our hospitals. It is also crucial to undertake routine self-exams and arrange regular dermatological checkups to detect potential skin cancers early.

The first step in treating skin cancer usually involves a biopsy to identify the kind and stage of the disease. Surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, or a combination of these treatments may be part of the treatment plan.

We are dedicated to giving skin cancer patients the best possible care at our hospitals. Our team of professionals creates each patient's treatment plan to address their needs and goals. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with skin cancer, I welcome you to get in touch with us to arrange a consultation and learn more about your treatment options.
