What is Skin Cancer?
Skin cancer refers to the abnormal growth of skin cells, usually because of damage to the skin cells because of excessive exposure to UV rays from sunlight. The three most common types of skin cancer include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Skin cancer must be detected and treated at the earliest stage possible. If left untreated, skin cancer can spread to other parts of the body and become life-threatening. To learn more about your options to protect your skin with a skin cancer screening with a biopsy in Leander, please call us for an appointment today.
Types of Skin Cancer
Causes of Skin Cancer
Skin cancer is caused by damage to the DNA of skin cells, which can be caused by exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun or tanning beds. UV radiation damages the genetic material in skin cells, causing mutations that can lead to the development of skin cancer. Fair-skinned individuals, those with a history of sun exposure and sunburns, or those with a history of indoor tanning are at a higher risk of developing skin cancer. If you notice a mole or new spot on your skin, you may want to consider getting a biopsy in Leander.
