Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is a tumour in skin that is caused by the cancerous growth of melanocytes, the cells that produce a dark pigment called melanin. Skin cancer starts on the top of the skin but it grows deep down in the skin. Basal skin cancer is the most common type of skin cancer, it occurs due to the exposure of skin to the sun. It is found in people of equilateral regions because sun rays affect the skin which causes cancers and also the areas that have high ozone layer depletion.  (company, 2000)
