Skin cancer is defined as the abnormal growth of cells in the skin's outermost layer caused by unpaired DNA damage, which causes mutations that appear as a lump or discolour the skin. The mutation causes skin cells to proliferate rapidly and form tumours. Basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, Merkel cell carcinoma, and melanoma are the most common types of skin cancer. Skin cancer develops in areas of the body that are exposed to ultraviolet (UV) raysfrom the sun on a regular basis, such as the nose, neck, arms, legs, lips, chest, scalp, face, and so on.
