INTRODUCTIONCancer is one of the dangerous disease known till now. It can simply be defined asabnormal growth of cell tissues. There is no particular definition of cancer and there is nodefined age group who mostly suffers from cancer(Robles & et.al. 2017). Cancer is mostly oftwo types first is malignant and second is non malignant cancer. Non malignant cancer does notresult in patient's death whereas malignant can develop more frequently and can result inpatient's death. Cancer is a term used for various kinds of diseases and out of which Skin canceris one of the most common type of cancer that can occur at any stage. It is extremely importantto detect Skin cancer at early stages because if one fails to detect it at initial stage then it canresult in patient's death as well. In this assignment case study analysis will focus on lesion anddifference in treatment options for both a malignant and non-malignant skin cancer.MAIN BODYIdentification of LesionLesion can be defined as abnormal change or damage in tissues of an organism. It ismostly caused by a disease but mostly caused by tumour or cancer. If lesion is cancerous then itis known as malignant or benign. If Lesion is caused by kainic acid or amino acid then it is calledas excitotoxic lesion. This lesion kills all kinds of neurons through over stimulation. There aremany types, but most commonly used lesion are: Macules are normally flat and represent changein colour. These are normally patches like tattoo, flat moles, port wine Stains and many more.Papules are elevated lesions which can be felt like insect bite, acne skin cancer. Other than thisother lesions are not dangerous. But the main lesions that are dangerous aremalignant, papulesare one of those lesions that are cancerous.Skin CancerSkin cancer is a type of cancer in which cancer starts to grow within normal cells,transform and multiply within other cells as well without normal controls(Mantso & et.al. 2018).As these cells multiply they form a tumour. These tumours are of two types malignant and nonmalignant. They are dangerous only if they are malignant because they are cancerous i.e.whenever they occur they damage neighbour tissues as well and become uncontrollable until andunless are treated correctly. There three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma (BCC),Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and melanoma. The first two types of skin cancer i.e. BCC andSCC comes under non-melanoma skin cancer. Most of the skin cancers are non-melanoma i.e.1
