Skin Cancer GalleriesLearn about skin cancer prevention and detection with the skin cancer galleries below.
What does skin cancer look like? It can vary depending on the type of cancer. The images in this gallery will show you some examples of basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma, as well as some benign skin conditions. Be sure to talk to your doctor about any spot or sore on your skin that is new or changing, even if it doesn’t look like one of these images.
Most skin cancers can be found early with skin exams. Both regular exams by your doctor and checking your own skin frequently can help find cancers early, when they are easier to treat. It’s important to check your own skin regularly, preferably once a month. The Skin Self-exam Gallery will show you how to look for new or changing spots or sores on your skin.
