Non-melanoma skin cancer of the face includes basal cell skin cancer, squamous cell skin cancers and other rare types. Most skin cancers are caused by exposure to the sun. There are some other factors that can increase your risk. The ear and nose are common sites for skin cancer, as it’s a prominent part of facial anatomy. Symptoms of skin cancer can include: a sore that doesn’t heal, an area of skin that looks unusual, red, itchy, bleeds or scabs for more than 4 weeks. Cure rates for early skin cancer are high and relies on cancers being diagnosed early.
If you have any concerns of persisting skin cancer symptoms, schedule an appointment.
