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

So when does skin cancer become deadly? And just like all the other cancers, skin cancer becomes deadly when it invades internally, and goes to our vital organs or the organs that we have to have to sustain life. So whether that’s getting bigger and bigger and closing off blood vessels, or whether that’s going into your liver or your kidneys or your bones or your brain, or you get the idea. Skin cancers become deadly when they go internal.

Now very fortunate for us that very rarely happens, especially if you’re taking care of yourself. Doing your monthly self body skin exams, coming in to see your dermatologist when we ask you to, and we both are actively engaged in your health. There’s no reason to die of skin cancer in the vast, vast majority of cases. If you’re paying attention, and we’re paying attention, you’re going to do just fine.
