Skin Cancer Complications
complications that can be resulted from skin cancer are:
Basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas
– if left untreated or poorly treated basal
cell and squamous cell carcinomas can spread locally and cause destructive effects in your organism. Metastasis
of basal cell or squamous cell carcinomas is very rare. A very advanced cancer of the lining of the mouth or
genitals, however, can form metastases and lead to death.
an advanced melanoma may cause complications
even after treatment. Thus, after treatment, a prolonged monitoring is necessary to detect recurrence and ensure
there are no other suspicious lesions. In the absence of effective treatment and increased surveillance, a
melanoma can spread and give rise to metastases in these sites:
metastatic skin cancer, your survival chances decrease dramatically. Follow your doctor's appointments and take
all precautionary measures to prevent recurrence of cancer after treatment.
