Out of ignorance, I made mistakes when I had my encounter with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma back in 1990. I live with those mistakes today!

I’m Gary Harmon and you can read my story here.
Throughout this site you’ll find experiences, opinions and tips from myself as a long term survivor from stage 4 squamous cell cancer that progressed inward.

I don’t want this to happen to you!

It was because of my lack of information, my unawareness of the dangers of skin cancer, a poor understanding of the medical treatments and a limited trust in relying on alternative treatments.

Don’t find yourself in this same position.

Cancer on your skin does not always match up with any pictures you may see. That's why it's important to see a dermatologist who specializes in skin cancer and follow up with a checkup at least once a year.

Whenever you see anything suspicious on your skin, see your dermatologist immediately.

An innocent mole can turn into a suspicious mole and then be a cancerous mole. There are many who don’t act at this point and later discover they have melanoma, at a later stage.

Don't let that happen to you. Read Nick's story

Cancerous Moles - Mole Cancers

There are other Rare Types of Skin Cancer found on your skin as well as cancerous moles and they are all covered on this site.

You’ll find pictures of cancer of the skin and information from the most common to the Rare Types.

Every type of cancer on your skin has its own threat, whether it be a threat to you cosmetically or a threat to your life.

Whatever type it is, they all have one thing in common. It's growing on your skin! You can see it and YOU can catch it early!

Anything unusual or suspicious should not be overlooked.

As you make your way around this site, gather all the information you can, including the experiences of others.

If you are now or have experienced SC, I ask that you be proactive and tell others your story.

Someone ...somewhere, is waiting to learn from your experience.

Hi! My name is Nick and I’m 56 yrs. old and this is part of my story. Let me tell you, I was like a lot of people out there and I had no idea that skin cancer was anything bad. I had Basal cell back in 2007, but that was no big deal and it was removed and that was the end of that. No one told me that it was a type of skin cancer (I looked it up on my computer). But still no big deal, it would not kill me.
But I did know the word "Melanoma"....." --by Nick

Bottom Line
The Weather Channel has done well posting this information and photos to help you spot skin cancer, including melanoma.
It can be hard to spot, even for a professional.
The bottom line is to get an expert's opinion about any suspicious mole or lesion on your skin. If necessary, get a second opinion  and/or request a biopsy. it’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Don’t put your very life at risk!
