Pre-Cancerous Skin Lesions

Skin Cancers and the pre-cancerous lesions actinic keratosis (AK) is a common lesion induced by ultraviolet light that represents the earliest manifestation of squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). AK often occurs during and after the midlife stage and is primarily caused by prolonged exposure to UV radiation. AKs appear on sun exposed areas such as face, ears, bald scalp, neck, back of hands, forearms and lips.

Skin cancer is a growing concern and widespread condition worldwide. With early detection and treatment the vast majority of skin cancers are curable with surgery alone. It is believed that practicing sun avoidance and sun protection over one's lifetime can prevent many skin cancers from ever developing.
