Skin Cancer

Skin cancers are malignant tumors resulting from the uncontrolled growth of abnormal skin cells. In a healthy person, skin cells are regenerated regularly in a controlled manner. In a skin cancer patient, the DNA within the cells of the affected region gets damaged, and they proliferate in an uncontrolled manner, causing rapid mutation and tumor formation.
