      Skin cancer, squamous cell on the hands

      This is a picture of squamous cell skin cancer on the hands. Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the three most common types of skin cancer: basal cell, squamous cell, and melanoma. Squamous cell cancers can metastasize (spread) and should be removed surgically as soon as they are diagnosed.

    • Thyroid cancer - CT scan

      Thyroid cancer - CT scan

      This CT scan of the upper chest (thorax) shows a malignant thyroid tumor (cancer). The dark area around the trachea (marked by the white U-shaped tip of the respiratory tube) is an area where normal tissue has been eroded and died (necrosis) as a result of tumor growth.

    • Skin cancer, melanoma - raised, dark lesion

      Skin cancer, melanoma - raised, dark lesion

      Note the presence of multiple colors within this melanoma lesion. It is referred to as "patriotic cancer" because it is typically colored red, white, blue/black. This is a common appearance for a melanoma.

      Skin cancer, melanoma - flat, brown lesion

      Melanomas are sometimes called the patriotic cancer because they may be colored red, whitish, and blue (to blue-black) all in the same lesion. This lesion has multiple colors.

      Skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma - behind ear

      This skin cancer appears as a 1 to 1. 5 centimeter flesh-colored nodule with a central depression and a raised, pearly border. Small blood vessels are visible (telangiectatic).
