Skin cancer can involve melanocytes, leading to melanoma, but there are other non-melanoma skin cancers. These include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and, less commonly, Merkel cell carcinoma, Kaposi’s sarcoma and T-cell lymphoma of the skin.

42 skos:definition Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is an epithelial tumour of the skin. It seldom metastasizes, but has the potential for local invasion and destruction. It usually occurs as one or several small pearly nodules with central depressions on the sun-exposed skin of older adults.

66 skos:definition Cancer is a complex disease in which cells in a specific tissue are no longer fully responsive to the signals within the tissue that regulate cellular differentiation, survival, proliferation and death. As a result, these cells accumulate within the tissue, causing local damage and inflammation. There are over 200 different types of cancer.

118 skos:definition Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer. It develops when skin cells multiply rapidly as a consequence of mutations in their DNA caused by UV exposure. Melanomas originate in the pigment-producing melanocytes in the basal layer of the epidermis; they often resemble moles and are generally black or dark brown.
