The local doctors are baffled as to what may be causing her distress. Some are speculating it might be skin cancer. So they are planning to transfer her to a larger facility in Dhaka.
Causes and Symptoms of Skin Cancer
The most common type of skin cancer is basal cell carcinoma, which begins in the basal cells — the round cells that line the lower part of the epidermis (skin’s outer layer).
Basal cell carcinomas usually occur on sun-exposed areas of the body, such as the face, neck, chest, back, shoulders, and hands. They are often slow growing and may appear as a small, pinkish bump or as a flat lesion with irregular borders.
A less common but more serious type of skin cancer is melanoma. Melanomas can occur anywhere on the body but are most likely to develop in areas that have been exposed to the sun, such as the face, legs, arms, and trunk.
Melanomas may also develop in areas that have not been exposed to sunlight. These tumors are usually black or brown and can have an irregular or blurry border. Melanomas can spread quickly to other parts of the body if they are not found early and treated.
Therefore it is critical to get help for Surochi Dasi as soon as possible. Surochi Dasi’s immediate family is impoverished and not able to contribute much.
Treatment Options for Skin Cancer
There are many treatment options available for skin cancer, and the best option for each individual will depend on the type and stage of their cancer.
Some common treatments include surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and targeted therapy.
Surgery is often the first line of treatment for skin cancer and can be used to remove both cancerous and non-cancerous growths. Radiation therapy uses high-energy waves to kill cancer cells and is usually combined with other treatments like surgery or chemotherapy. Chemotherapy uses drugs to kill cancer cells and can be given orally or intravenously. Targeted therapy uses drugs that target specific molecules involved in the growth of cancer cells, and is often used in conjunction with other treatments.
The side effects of treatment will vary depending on the type of treatment received but can include fatigue, nausea, hair loss, skin irritation, and others. It is important to discuss all potential side effects with your doctor before starting any treatment plan.
Prevention Tips for Skin Cancer
There are plenty of things you can do to reduce your risk of skin cancer, and most of them are pretty simple. Here are a few tips:
- Stay out of the sun as much as possible, especially during the midday hours when the sun’s rays are the strongest. If you must be in the sun, wear protective clothing and apply sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.
- Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps. These devices emit UV radiation that can damage your skin and increase your risk of skin cancer.
- Examine your skin regularly for any new or changing moles or other growths. If you notice anything unusual, contact your doctor for a professional evaluation.
- Have any suspicious growths checked by a dermatologist even if they don’t seem to be changing or causing any problems. Better safe than sorry!
