Sometimes our body sends us signals that we are unable to interpret. Perhaps the symptoms are confused with others of more common and harmless diseases. Yet knowing how to distinguish them can sometimes make the difference between life and death. It is not absolutely necessary to become alarmist though. Just gather reliable information to know how to act in the right way. That’s exactly what we’re going to do today. Experts sound pimples alarm because in these points they can be a sign of lethal tumor. Let’s see how to recognize it.
Pimples and fistulas
Everyone in our life has had to live with pimples. Sometimes sporadic, other times intrusive for years. These generally appear on the face, chest and back. These are skin inflammations that disappear within a few days, if we avoid giving in to temptation and crushing them. However, not all pimples are the same. In fact, there are some that may look like pimples or fistulas, but hide a much bigger threat.
Pimples alert because in these points they can be a sign of a lethal tumor
Expert dermatologists and oncologists in Italy and abroad raise the alarm. There is a type of skin cancer that is six times more lethal if it is not recognized at an early stage. This is nodular melanoma, which forms 15% of melanoma cases. This occurs in a very similar way to pimples or fistulas in unusual places on the body. Sometimes these are signs of a benign tumor, which still needs to be removed. But when it has specific characteristics, we have good reasons to urgently request in-depth examinations.
How to recognize nodular melanoma
First, nodular melanoma tends to appear in unusual areas of the body, such as the arms or legs. However, nothing prevents this from appearing in the areas preferred by classic pimples. So, the surest way to recognize them with the naked eye is to judge their appearance. Rounded protrusions appear on the skin. These can be red or brown like a mole. They grow very fast and are immediately identifiable. If we touch them they will appear harder than a simple pimple and may even ache slightly and bleed. This fake pimple will not go away, in fact it will continue to grow.
It is important to recognize this sign within two months of the first onset to have a better chance of survival. In fact, this melanoma grows much faster than the others.
