    Medical Reference Related to Cancer

    1. Basal Cell Carcinoma: Advanced Nodular BCC

      Basal cell carcinoma. This is a farther advanced nodular BCC. A solitary, shiny, nodule with large telangiectatic vessels on the ala nasi, arising on skin with dermatoheliosis.

    2. How Do I Know if I Have Stage IV Colon Cancer?

      Learn the symptoms of stage IV colon cancer. And find out which tests your doctor uses to find the right treatment.

    3. Squamous Cell Carcinoma on the Calf

      Squamous cell carcinoma in situ: Bowen's disease. A large, sharply demarcated, scaly, erythematous plaque simulating a psoriatic lesion on the calf.

    4. Squamous Cell Carcinoma with Central Hyperkeratosis

      Squamous cell carcinoma. A round nodule with central hyperkeratosis, firm and indolent. This lesion cannot be distinguished clinically from keratoacanthoma; it is easily distinguished from nodular BCC because BCC does not develop hyperkeratosis.

    5. Malignant Melanoma

      Malignant melanoma. Less than 2 percent of all melanomas occur during childhood. Nonetheless, attention must be paid to signs and symptoms suggestive of this potentially fatal disease. Variegations of color are of particular concern. Irregular or notched borders, bleeding, and ulceration are other signs of malignant change. The patient may give a history of itching, and the parents may have noted rapid growth of the lesion. Because the prognosis of a melanoma is most closely related to the thickness of the lesion at the time of treatment, emphasis should be on early diagnosis.

    6. Less Common Skin Cancers

      Uncommon types of skin cancer include Kaposi's sarcoma, mainly seen in people with weakened immune systems.

    7. Kaposi’s Sarcoma Ecchymotic

      Kaposi’s sarcoma. Ecchymotic purple-brownish macule and a 1-cm nodule on the dorsum of the hand of a 65-year-old male of Ashkenazi-Jewish extraction. The lesion was originally mistaken for a bruise as were similar lesions on the feet and on the other hand. The appearance of brownish nodules together with additional macules prompted a referral of this otherwise completely healthy patient to a dermatologist who diagnosed Kaposi's sarcoma, which was verified by biopsy. Note also onychomycosis of all fingernails.

    8. Skin Cancer

      Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma have been linked to chronic sun exposure, typically in fair-skinned people who work outside. Melanoma is associated with infrequent but excessive sunbathing that causes scorching sunburn.

    9. Squamous Cell Carcinoma

      Squamous cell carcinoma. A round nodule with central hyperkeratosis, firm and indolent. This lesion cannot be distinguished clinically from keratoacanthoma; it is easily distinguished from nodular BCC because BCC does not develop hyperkeratosis.
