Symptoms of Other Skin Cancers

Posted in Learn About Skin Cancer

A change on the skin is the most common sign of skin cancer. This may be a new growth, a sore that doesn't heal, or a change in an old growth. Not all skin cancers look the same. Usually, skin cancer is not painful.

Common symptoms of basal cell or squamous cell skin cancer include:

  • A lump that is small, smooth, shiny, pale, or waxy
  • A lump that is firm and red
  • A sore or lump that bleeds or develops a crust or a scale
  • A flat red spot that is rough, dry, or scaly and may become itchy or tender
  • A red or brown patch that is rough and scaly
