You can be the first one to recognize the skin cancer warning signs. These are early signs that help you to identify skin cancer.
Most symptoms of skin cancer grow slowly. It is often ignored, making it a threat and giving it time to go from precancerous sun damage to any of the types of skin cancer.
What most people don’t realize is that the skin cancer could also begin to grow inward, to the lymph nodes and other internal organs.
It can also change from growing slow ...to suddenly spreading fast ...and aggressively.
You can learn what to be looking for.
So when the very first skin cancer warning signs appear; that is the time to do something.
That is the time to see your dermatologist or Alternative Health professional …or maybe ...both!
In the very initial stage (Stage O) it is precancerous. Abnormal cells have begun to grow and may just appear very subtly and innocently for a long time.
They may not even develop into skin cancer, but they are signs of skin cancer and NOW is the best time to see a professional.
It also could appear as a very small lump on or just under the surface of the skin. That’s how mine appeared. I did not really notice anything visually, only by feeling it.
It could start from a freckle. Lot’s of people have freckles and they may remain unchanged for years and years.
A freckle may never turn into skin cancer, but when one or more do, you’re experiencing the first of the skin cancer warning signs.
There’s a guide called the Five Signs of Skin Cancer to help you know what kind of changes to be looking for.
Any Mole On Your Skin may be of concern. Again, you may have had the mole/s most of your life and they may never be a threat.
See Cancerous Moles
The signs of skin cancer are when changes start to take place. Sometimes it’s not a bad idea just to have it removed even if it’s the slightest concern.
Any slight discoloration of your skin could also be one of the symptoms of skin cancer.
Does it start to become elevated or irregular in shape?
Does it start to grow or change in color?
Is it a translucent lump?
Does the Mole look different now? Refer to the Five Signs of Skin Cancer.
Establish a habit of doing a Self Skin Exam and if you’re over the age of 40, most definitely 50, you should start seeing a dermatologist regularly.

Improving your health will never hurt you, and as I experienced, it may keep it from recurring.

"MELANOMA : “NO BIG DEAL ” IT'S JUST SKIN CANCER!
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
