8. Can all types of skin cancer be treated?

A. Yes, all types of skin cancer can be treated
B. No, only melanoma can be treated
C. Elderly people with skin cancer can not be treated

Answer: A is correct

Skin cancer is a serious disease. Fortunately, all forms can be treated, usually through surgery to remove the tumor. Other treatment methods are freezing, scraping, light treatment, or self-treatment with cream. The goal of surgery is to prevent cancer from returning and further spread of the disease.

How extensive the operation will be, and which surgical method is used, varies somewhat, and depends on the type of cancer and whether there is a risk of relapse. The choice of treatment depends, among other things, on where on the body the skin cancer is, size and whether you have other diseases in addition that can affect the treatment.

The earlier skin cancer is detected and treated, the greater the chance of a good prognosis. Therefore, it is important to consult a doctor if you have any symptoms.

9. Can you get completely healthy from mole cancer?

A. No
B. Yes, you can get completely well
C. This type of cancer must be lived with for the rest of your life

Answer: B is correct

The better acquainted you are with your body, the easier it is to detect if there are any changes you should get a doctor to look at. It is a good habit to take a look in the mirror in good light, for example when you have showered, and if possible get help to check your back.

The chance of being completely healed of mole cancer depends on the tumor being detected as early as possible and before it has spread. The symptoms do not have to be signs of cancer, but you should still take them seriously.


Those were the 9 Q & A’s I promised you about mole cancer and skin cancer. Hope you are left with some good answers so that you have something positive in mind if you are suspected of being attacked by these types of cancer.

Both mole cancer and skin cancer are curable, but be careful not to overdo it. The sun does good on mood and mind but is hard on the skin. Use sunscreen with factor or dress so that you protect yourself from the sun.
