PRESS RELEASE

Remember BURNS and ERUPTS when you look out for skin cancer

.


San Antonio, Texas. Are you interested in learning as how to distinguish between a cancerous and non-canceours skin lesion? Dr. Ghohestani's team at Texas Institute of Dermatology proposes novel mneumonics for early detection of non-melanoma skin cancer namely Basal cell (BCC) and Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). Basal Cell Carcinoma, the most common cancer, together with Squamous Cell Carcinoma affecting 1 in 5 Americans. In their early stages, both types of skin cancer are easily treated by an office surgery. If neglected, they can cause local disfigurement, damage to nearby tissues, and, in some cases, metastasize to distant organs and become fatal, said Dr. Ghohestani. Because they are easily taken care of early on, it is important to detect these skin cancers at the very early stage. Both patients and physicians should know what signs to look for so that they can detect BCCs and SCCs when they are most easily treatable. Just as with the ABCD of melanoma, the investigators at Texas Institute of Dermatology propose, in an article published in the European Journal of Dermatology, BURNS and ERUPTS as new mnemonics for early detection of SCC and BCC, respectively. read more >>
