Could It Be Skin Cancer? 3 Skin Changes to Look for That Could Signal Melanoma!

One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. That is why we doctors are so passionate about sunscreen. (Use it!) People can have skin cancer and not recognize it. For instance:

  • A pimple-like lesion that doesn’t go away, especially on the head or neck, might be a non-melanoma skin cancer. 
  • An eczema-like patch doesn’t go away with topical steroids could be early-stage skin cancer. 
  • A lesion that bleeds and doesn’t go away could be early non-melanoma skin cancer.
