skin cancer

The incidence of skin cancer in China is very low, but it is one of the common malignant tumors in white people, more than the sum of all other malignant tumors. In southern Australia, the incidence of skin cancer is at least 6.5 / 100,000, and among Caucasians in the United States, the incidence of skin cancer is as high as 165 / 100,000, which is 100 times the incidence in China. Basal cell carcinoma is most common in skin cancer, accounting for more than 60%. The early manifestations of various types of skin cancer are mostly erythema-like lesions, accompanied by scaly desquamation or scalp skin formation. Observation with the naked eye is not only difficult to distinguish the histological type, but is also easily confused with benign skin diseases such as psoriasis and eczema. Pathological examination is often required to confirm the diagnosis. No matter surgery, radiotherapy or other treatment methods, it has a very good effect on skin cancer, and the cure rate can be more than 90%.
