Skin Cancer
  • Skin cancer is an effect of both heredity and
    environmental causes (ex. UV rays/parents)
  • Skin cancer forms tumors under the skin. These
    tumors have a chance to be malignant.
  • Human skin is technically
  • the bodys largest organ and
  • protects all other organs. Its
  • also possible thisll harm other
  • body parts can be harmed.

Stages 1 2
  • The first two stages of skin cancer are when
    the cancer is localized to only one area of the
    body and can be removed with surgery before it
    spreads.

4
Stages 3 4
  • The third and final stage of skin cancer are
    when the cancer is not treated when found and is
    left alone to where it spreads to numerous part
    of the body also very possibly harming other
    organs of the body. Also it will harder to remove
    the sin cancer tumors if the surgery is even
    possible at all!

5
Signs/Symptoms
  • In most cases of skin cancer, signs can be as
    simple as a mole or growth on the skin.
  • Most times these small moles or growths are
    harmless but sometimes they can be the early
    signs of certain types of harmful skin cancer.
  • These moles or growths can usually be removed by
    surgery if found to be harmful or a threat to
    your health.

6
Treatments
  • The most common and most effective method for
    removing skin cancer, although sometimes
    expensive, is through surgery.
  • This method is traditionally done when the cancer
    is in the stages one or two because when the
    cancer reaches the stages of three and four, the
    surgery can have negative consequences.

7
Cures
  • As of right now, sadly, there is not a cure for
    any form of skin cancer.
  • There are people around the world(Scientists)
    working on a cure for skin cancer.

    cancer.
