Home treatment after a skin cancer is removed includes regular use of skin protection measures to prevent a return (recurrence) of nonmelanomaskin cancer and regular exams to watch for suspicious skin changes.
Check your skin and skin growths for any changes in color, shape, size, or appearance.
Look for any diseased area of skin that has not healed.
Report any suspicious changes in your skin to your doctor.
Certain medicines, such as some antibiotics or diuretics, can make your skin more sensitive to the sun's rays. Ask your doctor about this potential side effect of your medicines, and take extra precautions if needed.
