Skin Cancer Symptoms, Signs and Treatment [2018]
Skin cancer symptoms, signs and treatment you should know. As you prepare for your beach vacations and fun in the sun, are you properly protecting your skin from skin cancer? Can black people get skin cancer? Subscribe so you’ll never miss my latest videos. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBve_ppCNE67fs3MsIocitg?sub_confirmation=1 Be sure to follow me on: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dr.frita/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Dr.Frita Twitter: https://twitter.com/DrFrita There are two types of skin cancer, non-melanoma, and melanoma. There are two common causes of non-melanoma skin cancers. They are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. People who have fair skin and who have a lot of exposure to the sun are at the highest risk for skin cancer. Anderson Cooper of CNN reported that he had a spot of skin cancer removed Melanoma is a type of skin cancer that can show up in places that are harder to see on the skin, like on your back or the inside linings of your mouth or even under your feet. Melanoma tends to be a more aggressive type of skin cancer. It can present with different colors on your skin, black, brown, bluish. It tends to have jagged, irregular edges, and it can be uneven or asymmetric. Melanoma can even look like a black dot when it first appears. Indeed, excess sun exposure does put you at increased risk for skin cancer, but so does an increased exposure to tanning beds. Andy Cohen of Bravo and the Real Housewives franchise used to be a self-proclaimed “tanorexic._ He once had a black dot on his lower lip and his friend, Kelly Ripley, noticed it and she urged him to see his doctor. That black dot turned out to be melanoma. In my medical practice, when I counsel on sun exposure and skin cancer, I've had more than one of my know-it-all patients ... and you know who you are ... tell me, "Dr. Frita, why are you telling me this? Black people can't get skin cancer." Not true. The legendary Bob Marley had skin cancer, melanoma. It actually started out as a dark spot that he saw under his toenail. He just thought it was an injury from playing soccer. But as it turns out, it was melanoma, and he died at the age of 36. It just goes to show you, no matter what your color, your ethnicity, your culture, it's important that you pay attention to your body, that you examine your own skin and make note of any changes. How do you diagnose a skin cancer? You go to your physician. Your physician will examine your skin all over, and if they see any type of a lesion or a mole that looks suspicious, then they will set you up for a biopsy or they will sample that lesion. Your doctor will then send that biopsy or that sample to another type of physician, a pathologist, who will examine that biopsy under the microscope. If it looks like skin cancer, then they will make that diagnosis. How can you prevent skin cancer? Well, the most important thing is to try to avoid too much exposure to the sun. Try to avoid the sun during peak hours, like between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Also, avoid tanning beds. Most tanning beds emit UVA radiation, which can be harmful to the skin. Another thing to do, if you can't avoid the sun, which most of us can't, make sure that you protect your skin. You can protect your skin by wearing a broad spectrum sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB range radiation. Also, make sure that the SPF, the sun protection factor, is at minimum 30, but if you have fair skin or if you're going to have prolonged exposure to the sun, you need to use an even higher SPF. Also, wear wide-brimmed hats. Wear shades. Put on a nice thin clothing that will cover your arms, that will cover your legs, and make sure you reapply your sunscreen frequently, especially if you go swimming or if you've been wiping your skin down or if you've just been out for more than a little bit of time. Make sure that you reapply your sunscreen frequently, especially if you've been sweating or swimming or wiping down your skin. Oh, and can black people get sunburned? From personal experience, I can tell you yes. This ends my overview of Skin cancer symptoms, signs and treatment and sun protection. I want you to comment down below, share my video, like my video, subscribe to my page. As always, I want you to prioritize yourselves. As you enjoy the summer and the sunny beautiful weather, make sure that you remember your health and that you protect your skin from the sun. Make sure that you go to your doctors regularly, get your skin checked, and take care of you. Make sure you strive to live your healthiest, happiest life. I'm Dr. Frita.

Chemotherapy: How should I care for my skin? | Norton Cancer Institute
Mary Anderson,Oral Chemotherapy Registered Nurse Clinician, with the Norton Cancer Institute, explains the different types of chemotherapy treatments available and what to expect while going through treatments. Chemotherapy in general can affect your skin in several different ways. It can dry your skin out, or you can get a rash. Some medications that we give to treat cancer cause a rash that looks like acne which can develop on your face and your chest and on your back. Other medications cause what we call hand and foot syndrome where the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet become red, calloused, cracked and can even become painful. So there are many different skin care methods that we can use to help prevent this from happening. Some patients say that they felt like their skin was burning from the inside out after chemotherapy. By limiting your showers to five to 10 minutes and using warm water instead of hot water might alleviate some of that. Use a mild soap to bathe in and also use an anti-dandruff shampoo to help relieve any scalp discomfort. Some people will even use the anti-dandruff shampoo as a body wash to help alleviate dry itchy skin. When you get out your shower, pat your skin dry instead of rubbing it and apply a moisturizing cream that does not contain any alcohol or fragrance. Fragrances and alcohol can be very irritating to your skin. Chemotherapy in general also makes your skin a lot more sensitive to sunlight. So you want to make sure that you're avoiding direct sunlight and if you must go out in direct sunlight, make sure you wearing a hat and sunscreen with at least an SPF of 30. When your skin is sensitive, wear loose comfortable clothing. I know bras in particular can be very bothersome to a woman. So buying a sports bra that might be a few sizes larger than what you normally wear might be more comfortable for you. Also when you're around the house, make sure that you're wearing thick socks with nice comfortable slippers or shoes. Getting a good night's sleep is also very important, by turning off the TV, promoting a relaxing environment before you go to bed, avoiding alcohol and caffeine before you go to sleep. Also when you're in bed want to think about what you're wearing to bed also. You might not have hair and so your head is cold. Many patients like to wear a cap made of jersey knit to keep their head warm while they're sleeping. If you have a rash that becomes very bothersome, you need to call your doctor. Also if the palms of your hands are sore and tender to where you cannot perform your daily activities or if the soles of your feet keep you from walking or make it painful to walk, make sure you call your doctor.

Skin Cancer Basics For San Diego, Dr Mitchel P Goldman Dermatologist
http://www.clderm.com SD Living speaks with Dr Mitch Goldman, Medical Director of Cosmetic Laser Dermatology, about skin cancer. ABCD's of Skin Cancer When Memorial Day rolls around, you have to be extremely careful about protecting the skin from intense sun. Even on a cloudy day you can damage the skin, which is why sunscreen must be worn every single day in the summer regardless of the weather. Water resistant or waterproof sunscreen does not actually stay on all day long. This is why it is so important to reapply every time you get in the water and then climb back out. Another thing many people do not realize is that more sun is actually absorbed into the skin when you are near water or in the snow in winter. The reflection off the snow or water hits the skin from top and bottom for a double dose of danger. Knowledge about sunlight and cancer is just now becoming mainstream. Every year people are diagnosed with skin cancer because of the unsafe practices years in the past, such as lying in the sun for hours to obtain a tan. Doctors are now giving free skin cancer screenings, so there is no excuse for anyone to go undiagnosed today. Once diagnosed, photodynamic therapy can be used to treat skin cancer. This completely eliminates the need to cut the cancerous cells out of the skin. This laser treatment can eliminate early stages of skin cancer while preventing it from developing again. If you are worried about skin cancer on your own body, look for things that are growing or changing with time.

Double-lung transplant survivor now battles skin cancer
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - Nearly three years ago, Local 12 introduced you to Sam Boling and has followed her lifesaving double lung transplant. What followed that was her marriage to Ty Jamison and their continuing love story. Now, there's an update to share. Driving in from Adams County four days a week, Sam Jamison comes to Anderson Township to run the reception desk for Darren and Company Hair Salon. "I developed this bump which started out as a pimple and then it got bigger and bigger," Sam said. The 27-year-old takes 180 pills a week to stay alive after her lung transplant, including two anti-rejection drugs that weaken her immune system, making sunscreen less effective. So a new fight begins. Doctors fear cancer on her eyelid may have attached to a nerve, sending cancer to other spots. Surgery will be scheduled for later in the month to remove as much as they can, adding skin grafts and possibly radiation. "I feel like all people are looking at it so it's taught me not to stress about what people think of you because it's kind of out of your control." Sam said she took a day or two to be angry with God and feel sorry for herself, but her husband Ty won't let her stay down. This is a couple that has faced death and truly lives as if each extra day is a blessing worth celebrating. "I think it's ok to feel sorry for yourself for a bit, but you always need to look for silver-lining it may take a little longer to find it." So far, two warts have come back cancerous, one more precancerous and several others still to be tested.

Cansema Black Salve   Skin Cancer Australia
Australian woman Nirvana Anderson details her experience with Aldara and Cansema Black Salve. After watching her father be mutilated by conventional skin cancer treatment she searched for a way to treat her skin without harsh chemicals or surgery. AUSTRALIAN PETITION TO HAVE CANSEMA BLACK SALVE DECRIMINALISED: 1. https://www.change.org/petitions/australian-government-decriminalise-the-use-of-cansema-black-salve-on-human-beings# BUY THE MOVIE ($10 AUD) THAT PRESENTS THE FULL STORY OF BLACK SALVE AND SHOWS YOU HOW TO MAKE IT YOURSELF HERE (BEFORE THE GOVERNMENT BANS IT) : http://www.oneanswertocancermovie.com/ The TGA sent two men 1,800km to my home to shut down my website where I talked about Black Salve although I didn't sell it. They had no interest in my results, they just wanted me to be quiet. This youtube posting is the only option I now have to present my own experience and results. My 19 treatments cost me $60 which was the cost of one tub of Black Salve. Surgery would have cost me thousands. I am not a scammer. I am an ordinary Australian mother who watched her father and other relatives be mutilated by conventional skin cancer treatments. When I stumbled on Black Salve in 2010, I decided that I should try it so my children could be better informed about options and not have to surrender to the knife. My father's skin cancer treatments never ended. He had numerous skin grafts, the most noticeable was one on his forehead which had long hairs growing out of it. It had been transplanted from a hairy area of his body and the hairs continued to grow. He used to get up to a hundred cancers burnt off with liquid nitrogen at one time. All this made it obvious - conventional medicine is not winning the battle against skin cancer. When you try this product and have good results please pay it forward. Take photos, keep records of how what happened and post on youtube. We simply can't allow this product to remain in the shadows.

Targeted therapy before surgery inhibits stage 3 melanoma
First-of-its-kind study indicates pretreatment improves outcomes over standard-of-care surgery A pair of targeted therapies given before and after surgery for melanoma produced at least a six-fold increase in time to progression compared to standard-of-care surgery for patients with stage 3 disease, researchers at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center report in Lancet Oncology. Early results of the study comparing surgery to pre- and post-surgical treatment with the BRAF inhibitor dabrafenib and the MEK inhibitor trametinib were so strikingly positive that MD Anderson’s data safety monitoring board ordered the randomized, prospective phase II trial halted and changed to a single-arm using the combination. “These results are encouraging for patients with surgically resectable stage 3 melanoma, who face a high rate of relapse and progression to metastatic disease,” said lead author Rodabe Amaria, M.D., assistant professor of Melanoma Medical Oncology. “Our proof-of-concept study strongly supports further assessment of neoadjuvant (presurgical) therapy for this high-risk population, which has a five-year survival rate of less than 50 percent.” The targeted combination is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for stage 4 metastatic melanoma that features a BRAFV600 mutation. Amaria, senior author Jennifer Wargo, M.D., associate professor of Surgical Oncology and Genomic Medicine, and colleagues hypothesized that the combination could help patients with stage 3 BRAF-mutant disease. Trial launched through Moon Shots Program In October 2014, the investigator-initiated clinical trial was launched through the Melanoma Moon Shot™, co-led by Wargo and part of MD Anderson’s Moon Shots Program™ to accelerate improvement of cancer treatment and prevention. It was the first prospective, randomized neoadjuvant clinical trial for stage 3 melanoma. The trial was designed to enroll 84 patients randomized to either up-front surgery or to eight weeks of the targeted combination followed by surgery and another 44 weeks of combination treatment. An interim data analysis occurred after 21 patients were treated. At a median follow-up time of 18.6 months: · All seven treated with standard of care surgery had their disease progress, with median time to progression at 2.9 months. · Of 14 randomized to the neoadjuvant combination, four progressed, with median time to progression of 19.7 months. · Of the seven patients who achieved a pathological complete response after presurgical therapy, none experienced distant disease relapse. · Median overall survival had not been reached in either arm. Most melanoma is detected at early stages and treated successfully with surgery, but about 15 percent of patients progress to stage 3, when the disease has spread to lymph nodes. Patients with stage 4 disease but with fewer than four resectable metastases also are enrolled in the trial. Importance of pathological complete response Reaching pathological complete response (pCR) – no evidence of cancer found by pathology at surgery – appears to be a powerful indicator of treatment success, Wargo said. Twelve patients in the neoadjuvant group proceeded to surgery, with seven achieving pCR. Only one relapsed, with a small tumor in the same area as the original tumor. Three patients who reached a partial pathological response relapsed, with all developing brain metastases, a common risk in BRAF-positive disease. “As we accumulate more data, we can further explore the importance of pathological complete response,” Wargo said. “If we can prove that pathologic complete response is important in achieving superior outcomes, then the next step is to ask ‘what can you do to get to pCR?’”
Man dying from skin cancer dedicates life to helping others
You wouldn't know it by looking at him, but Alan Anderson is dying. "I have Stage IV metastatic melanoma," he said. The 63-year-old former accountant who was born in Donna has been given only a year or two left to live.

So on behalf of FNB Insurance and Action 4 News, I'm Paying it 4Ward! Here's 100, 200, 300, 400 dollars for you to do whatever you want with." "Thank you," Alan said to her.

How to Treat Summer Skin Damage
http://GoldenbergDermatology.com The harsh summer sun emits harmful UVA and UVB rays that can age the skin, cause uneven pigmentation, dark spots and melanoma. The first step in preventative care is of course, to wear sunscreen. If you have neglected that important part of your skin care routine, make sure you visit your dermatologist so that he/ she can evaluate your skin and check for any signs of skin cancer. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, over the past three decades, more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined. Once your dermatologist determines you have no signs of cancer, you may look into treatments that reverse the superficial damage your skin has suffered. Dr. Goldenberg uses Fraxel Dual and Clear + Brilliant to treat hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. Remember that it is important to wear sunscreen any time you are outdoors, even on cloudy days and in the winter. Harmful rays penetrate the ozone layer year-round.
