Skin cancer is caused due to the abnormal growth of cells on the outer surface of the skin namely the epidermis. This causes formation of lumps on the skin surface and hence the detection at the initial stages. These days’ human-beings are much more prone to skin cancer, due to increased exposure to the sun’s harmful Ultra-Violet (UV) radiations. Hence it is necessary to reduce the exposure towards sun.
This leads to deficiency of Vitamin-D which lessens the body’s immunity and its ability to fight the diseases. Also the application of sunscreen lotions retards vitamin-D synthesis process, which further aggravates cell damage and secretion of hormones that promotes this type of cancer. Cancer in skin can be classified into 3 types namely: melanoma, basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma. The conventional techniques available for treatment are:
Application of topical solutions for non-melanoma cancer type
For advanced cases of melanoma: chemotherapy and immunotherapy
