Signs And Symptoms Of Skin Cancer Due To Mercury Use?
I want to ask.. what is skin cancer? I don’t understand the doctor’s explanation?
Thanks for the question. Skin cancer occurs due to a gene mutation that causes abnormal growth of skin cells. In general, skin cancer can occur in areas of the skin that are frequently exposed to the sun; because in general skin cancer is caused by excessive exposure to ultraviolet light on the skin, however, this condition can also appear on areas of the skin that are not exposed to sunlight. Symptoms that can appear in skin cancer depend on the type of skin cancer experienced by the patient and symptoms appear on any area of the skin including the face:
basal cell carcinoma: can be a soft and shiny lump on the skin, skin disorder that is flat and dark brown in color or reddish like flesh squamous cell carcinoma: can be a hard lump on the skin that is red, skin disorder that is flat and scaly melanoma: can be brown bumps, moles that change shape and color or bleed, appear bumps on the skin of various colors with irregular edges. To find out whether a skin disorder is melanoma or not is to assess the disorder based on its symmetry, the periphery of the skin disorder, color, diameter/size, and increase in size of the skin disorder. If you are still having trouble understanding the symptoms of skin cancer, you can consult a doctor for further examination. carry on. Usually to be sure, the doctor will recommend a skin biopsy (taking a sample of skin tissue for examination in a laboratory).
Mercury exposure to the body can indeed cause a number of health problems but mercury does not cause skin cancer. Mercury can cause damage to the kidneys while on the skin can cause skin rashes, skin discoloration, and the appearance of scars on the skin.
Hope this information is useful.
