Information about Skin Cancer

 

The skin is unique in three ways. First, it is a living covering for the body to protect it from loss of water and injury from light, heat, chemicals and infections. Second it is important organ for body temperature and lastly it is the only organ easily visible making it an excellent model for early diagnosis treatment and prevention. There are 3 main types of skin cancers

 

1. Basal cell carcinoma

2. Squamous cell carcinoma

3. Melanoma

 

Out of which Basal cell and Squamous cell are most common type of cancers of the skin. Both are found mainly on the parts that are exposed to sun such as head and neck. Melanoma’s are not as common as the other two but can be far more serious. 

 

Approach of Rasayu Cancer Clinic towards treatment of skin cancer largely depends on the stage of cancer.

Patient can perform most of the day to day functioning and can lead life almost similar to that of healthy individual. At the same time while improving patient’s quality of life Rasayana Therapy also works on the cancer to cause natural regression.
