Q: Hello Professor, my question is how do Basel cell epithelioma and spino-cellular epithelioma manifest? For effective prevention, in the absence of obvious signs of alternation, it is necessary to simply undergo an annual dermatological check up?


A: Cutaneous epitheliomas are cancerous growths that are mainly caused by exposure to the sun and they typically target individuals with sensitive skin. They may develop into melanoma, which is a cancer of a different type. In both cases, it is recommended to see a dermatologist so that prevention can be guaranteed.
