Why Do Skin Cancers Return?

Skin cancers become active at different stages, we are fortunate for that because if they all became active at once we would not survive. When we get sunburned do we simply get burned on a very small area or do we normally get burned all over. Yet we expect to only have the skin cancer localized to some small area of our face or body.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma – Ayurvedic Herbal Treatment

Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) is the second most common form of skin cancer and frequently arises on the sun exposed skin of middle aged and elderly individuals. General risk factors associated with the disease are: age more than 50; male sex ; fair skin; location closer to the equator; history of prior non-melanoma skin cancer or human papilloma virus infection; high exposure to ultra violet light, chemical carcinogens and ionizing radiation; and chronic immuno-suppression or a scarring condition. A cumulative life time sun exposure and immuno-suppression are primarily believed to be the cause of this condition. A typical SCC lesion is a raised, pink-to-flesh-colored papule or plaque arising on sun exposed skin. Surgery, local chemotherapy, photo-dynamic therapy and radiation therapy are the standard line of treatment for this condition.
