Pigment – Any change in skin pigmentation can be a sign of skin cancer. Look especially for brown or red spots that are rough or scaly in texture.
Sores – Any sores or scabs that are non-healing or reoccurring can be skin cancer. These sores are especially common on the face, ears, lips, nose and hands.
Mystery Scars – Some cancers that develop look like scars that are firm to the touch. If you have developed a scar that the origin is a mystery, it may be cancer.
