Other Types of Skin Cancer

From the Colorado Dermatology Institute in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Daily Do of Dermatology - Title

Video Transcript:

So here’s another “Daily Do” from your friendly local dermatologist.

So you’ve probably heard me talk a lot about the big three skin cancers and dermatologists, basal cell and squamous cell, and that makes up the umbrella of the non-melanoma skin cancers, and then the melanoma skin cancers. So those are the big three, but what other types of cancers exist? And the answer is this many.

Now fortunately there’s not too many of this many out there. But you can get a cancer of almost anything. So any area of your body, any tissue, any cell can turn cancerous. You can get things called angiosarcoma that are made out of blood vessels. You can get things called merkel cell cancers, you can get things of, you know guys, the sky’s the limit. So if you have one of these weird other cancers, you have to talk to your local dermatologist about what it means for you, and then you should be asking your local dermatologist, “Hey, do I need to see an oncologist as well? Because I understand this is one of the more rare forms of skin cancer.”
