Symptoms of Basal Cell and Squamous Cell Skin Cancers
A change on the skin is the most common sign of skin cancer. This may be a new growth, a sore that doesn't heal, or a change in an old growth. Not all skin cancers look the same. Usually, skin cancer is not painful.
Common symptoms of basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer include:
|A lump that is small, smooth, shiny, pale, or waxy||A lump that is firm and red|
|A sore or lump that bleeds or develops a crust or a scab||A flat red spot that is rough, dry, or scaly and may become itchy or tender|
|A red or brown patch that is rough and scaly|
