Where Can You Find Pictures of Various Types of Skin Cancer?

The WebMD, Healthline and MedicineNet offer pictures of various types of skin cancer. Mayo Clinic also offers pictures of different types of skin cancer on its website.

Types of skin cancer include melanoma, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, according to Mayo Clinic. Although most skin cancer develops on sun-exposed skin, it can occur on parts of the body that are not exposed to the sun. Basal cell and squamous cell are the most common types of skin cancer. Malignant melanoma is less common and more difficult to treat, notes WebMD. Regardless of type, early detection of skin cancer ensures the greatest chance for successful treatment.
