There are different types of skin cancer. Each type has different symptoms and signs. This article will talk about symptoms of common skin cancers. Symptoms of common skin cancers:
  • Melanoma. Melanoma develops in either the normal skin or a mole that already exists. Its signs include dark lesions on toes, fingertips or the palm of your hands, a big brown spot that has speckles on it.
  • Squamous cell carcinoma. It often affects the ears, face, and hands. It presents itself as a crusted flat lesion, or a firm nodule in red color.
  • Basal cell carcinoma. This type of cancer mainly develops on the face or neck. It looks like a waxy or white raised area, or a brown scar-like lesion, or a smooth lesion with no color.
