Whether it’s a cloudy day or not, if you don’t wear sunscreen, you’re at risk of developing skin cancer caused by the sun’s rays that can penetrate clouds. As writes MedikForumrepeated exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can lead to abnormal proliferation of skin cells.

According to oncologist Andrey Vorobyov, squamous cell carcinoma is the most common type of hand skin cancer. Squamous cell carcinoma can look like a cut or a non-healing infection, he says.

Moreover, this type of cancer is successfully treated in the early stages. However, if the cancer has enough time to develop, then it can be “dangerous”. Squamous cell carcinoma may appear as thick, rough, scaly patches that may crust or bleed. The lesions are usually surrounded by sun-damaged skin, which may be wrinkled or have discoloration or loss of elasticity.

According to the expert, squamous cell carcinoma can resemble warts or open sores that don’t heal completely.
