And if it's caught soon enough, there is a high chance of being cured completely of this disease. Today, I'm going to give some insight on some risk factors, warning signs, and what you can do to prevent skin cancer. As far as risk are concerned, the more risk factors that apply to you, the more likely you will get this disease. People of any age and race can get melanoma, but some individuals are at a higher risk. For example, white males over the age of fifty and women between the ages of 25 and 32.
Hair takes on a bleached appearance, while skin becomes darker. Precautions should be taken to limit exposure to ultraviolet light to prevent skin and hair damage. Some of the sun's rays are beneficial, but others, such as ultraviolet rays, are hazardous. This radiation comes in three forms: ultraviolet A (UVA), ultraviolet B (UVB) and ultraviolet C (UVC). The earth's atmosphere filters out UVC radiation, but UVA and UVB affect you every day.
A health hazard that is caused by lifestyle choices could be smoking as this is linked to many types of cancers like lung cancer or mouth cancer. Safety Hazard According to scribd.com, a safety hazard is “anything that can have an adverse impact on your safety that [can] result in injury.” This can range from chemical hazards to biological
Basil Cell Carcinoma can be associated with scars, vaccinations, or even Tattoos. In able to diagnose his skin cancer, a shaved skin biopsy may be necessary to come up with the type, and histological subtype of BCC. If the results come back negative, and a clinical suspicion is
With that being said, there is lesser chance of a mutated gene being passed on to a child. When gene mutations are passed on throughout a family that increases ones risk of getting melanoma, this is known as familial melanoma. If parents or siblings are diagnosed with melanoma there is a suspected inherited risk. Although people have an increased risk of melanoma that does not mean that they will develop it. Only ten percent of melanoma is familial, with the other ninety percent being a result of exposure to UV
UNCONTROLLED cell proliferation 1) abnormally HIGH rates of cell division: • the cell cycle has LOST regulatory control 2) can DETACH and INVADE other tissues. 1) Benign neoplasms • may be removed for cosmetic reasons • may be advised to prevent cancer formation 2) Malignant melonoma • usually results from exposure to sunlight • causes MORE DEATHS than other skin cancers combined! 55. What causes bed sores, and why are they dangerous? How can they be avoided?
Being overweight can increase the risk of getting Gallbladder Cancer. 3. Gallbladder Cancer tends to show up in Native Americans and Hispanics more than others. 4. Having gallstones or cholecystitis (inflammation of the gallbladder) can also cause it.
In order to collect my information for this report I am going to be gathering different points of interest from books, internet and newspapers, etc. I will try to get the information off the most reliable sites to make sure my report is accurate. (6) These all show types of skin cancers developed from sun bathing. Scientific Disadvantages of the sun From a recent study of 2600 people it showed that those who were exposed to high amounts of sunlight were more prone to bodily issues such as a cataract (cloudy eye lenses). (9) Exposing yourself to sunlight is a factor.
Relevant to this, potential risks to individuals arise due to balancing benefits of technologies to the society. As exposure to ionizing radiations cannot be eliminated completely, but these exposures can be kept to minimized level. There is increasing risk of skin cancer leukaemias and brain tumours in workers exposed occupationally to EM fields and radiations. Excessive exposure to Ultraviolet radiations can cause such consequences like cataracts, eye
Nancy Terry Unit 4 Case Study 2 There are many things that can contribute to he risk of having skin cancer. Our genes play a huge role in our skin, but the can also influence the risk of developing skin cancer. Genetic mutations account for forty percent of all occurrences of inherited skin cancers. Research shows that specific mutations in certain genes like POT1 were likely to develop melanoma, which is a type of skin cancer. This particularly mutation deactivates POT1, which protects the ends of chromosomes.
