What does the treatment do?

Most skin cancers can be categorised as one of the most common types: basal cell or squamous cell, or melanomas. Basal or squamous cell cancers are rare to spread to other parts of the body and usually respond well to treatment. On the other hand, melanoma is far more dangerous, and the cause of the majority of skin cancer deaths. Skin cancer screening can help patients identify skin cancer in its earliest stages, when it is easier to treat and before it becomes a more serious concern.
