Skin cancer symptoms: The first sign of non-melanoma on your body 1

Skin cancer is best treated earlier – as with most types of diseases. Non-melanoma is more prevalent throughout the world. What’s the sign you have it?

The NHS explains that non-melanoma “slowly develops in the upper layers of the skin”.

Typically, the first warning sign of this type of cancer is the presence of a “lump or patch on the skin that doesn’t heal after a few weeks”.

Specifically, it is concerning if the lump or patch hasn’t healed after four weeks.

Alternatively, BCC can also look like a red, scaly patch.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)

SCC accounts for 20 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers, and it starts in the cells lining the top of the epidermis.

SCC appears as a firm pink lump, which may have a flat, scaly and crusty surface.

Often tender to touch, the lump can bleed easily and may develop into an ulcer.
