Non-Melanoma Pictures
There are 4 main types of non-melanoma skin cancer Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), Actinic Keratoses (AK), Keratoacanthoma (KA).


Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC)

BCC is the most common skin cancer in humans. It often looks like a skin-colored pearly bump. Sometimes it can also look like a pink patch on the skin. BCC develops on areas that get frequent sun exposure, such as the head, neck, and arms, but can also form elsewhere on the body. It grows slowly and rarely spreads to other parts of the body. Prompt treatment is important so that it doesn't cause damage to the skin and structures around the tumor.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC)

SCC is the second most common skin cancer. It often looks like a reddish, scaly patch, a firm bump, or an ulcer. Like BCC, it develops on areas that get frequent sun exposure. People with light skin are at a higher risk than dark-skinned people. SCC can grow deep and spread to other areas of the body, so prompt treatment is essential.

Actinic Keratoses (AK)

AKs are dry, scaly patches that are considered the earliest stage of skin cancer. They often occur in light-skinned people over the age of 40. However, even teens can get AKs if they spend a lot of time in the sun or use indoor tanning. In some cases, AKs can progress to SCC. Because of this risk, AKs are treated promptly. The proper use of sunscreen can help prevent AKs

Keratoacanthoma (KA)

KA is a rapidly growing skin cancer. It usually occurs in people over 50 years of age and looks like a volcano-like bump on sun-exposed skin. Most often, KA causes only minimal skin damage, but sometimes it can spread to other areas on the body. This is why quick evaluation by a dermatologist is important.
