Although many people consider “skin cancer” as a single type of cancer, there are actually many different cancers that fall under this category, including squamous cell carcinoma, melanoma, and basal cell carcinoma. Over 3.3 million people in America are diagnosed with some form of skin cancer every year. As with other forms of cancer, skin cancers must be diagnosed as early as possible to make treatment more successful and to give a patient a greater chance at survival.
Unfortunately, some skin cancers are misdiagnosed or are diagnosed when it is too late and the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. Other patients are diagnosed with skin cancer and subjected to painful, debilitating treatment when they are suffering from other, less serious medical conditions. In any such scenario, a patient and his or her family will be left to deal with the consequences.
