Skin cancer can manifest anywhere on your body. It is most likely to occur on skin that has had exposure to sunlight. The most common areas are the face, neck, hands, and arms. Skin cancer is divided up into three main different types; Basal Cell Carcinomas, Squamous Cell Carcinomas, and Melanomas.
Types of Skin Cancer
Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common type out of the three skin cancers. They originate from the deepest part of your epidermis (i.e. basal layer) and usually occur from overexposure to sun. They can be easily treated and are usually not life threatening.
