Skin Cancers

Skin cancer is defined as the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin, as a result of unrepaired DNA damage that causes mutations. These mutations cause skin cells to grow rapidly, resulting in cancerous tumours. Basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), melanoma, and Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) are the most common kinds of skin cancer.
