Human skin is perhaps the largest sensory organ on his body. This performs a lot of functions from protecting the inner body to insulating the body against adverse conditions. However, the skin requires really great treatment and care which if it’s not given it could make one susceptible to lots of ailments and diseases which may be difficult to control. The skin does really good job of protecting us against natural predators like sunlight, heat, injures and infections.
Cancer is one of the deadliest conditions that could affect the human skin. Cancer may affect the skin when it is exposed too much to causals, including chemicals and toxic rays. As investigated, melanoma is the most dangerous form of skin cancer and something to look out for if someone’s skin is experiencing any sort of unexpected changes. An American woman, Bethany went through an awful experience with her skin in 2015. She had a dark spot showed up on her skin while she was pregnant.
She initially linked the awful changes on her skin to simple hormonal changes in her body until she learnt the hard truth about her situation. Within the first 18 months of appearance, the spot became more painful than she imagined and she had to visit a dermatologist, only to receive a scary diagnosis. Cancer?! It was an invasive and very aggressive form of melanoma that the dermatologist gutted it wouldn’t be treated immediately.
The mole was removed but the cancer continued to spread. The damage was said to have been caused by excessive use of tanning beds, and she has to go on her world journey with a personal gospel and awareness against the danger of cancer through the same mean. She went through series of painful immunotherapy treatments before she became cancer free. However, the condition was set to leave an indelible impact in her life. If the photos taken after her treatment didn’t scare you, I am gutted nothing ever would.
Now, Bethany want her story shared to a wider audience to increase the awareness about the several dangers that exist with things that come in contact with our skin and what aftermath effects such may leave behind even if one is lucky to get back to fit with medical treatments. She also advised the importance of checking into moles that experience some unlikely changes. We reckon that no one should ever make Bethany’s mistake again. We should all feel free to pick up the phone and contact medical professionals and dermatologists as soon as possible when any changes are spotted on our skin.
