Lip Cancer Symptoms Skin cancer on lip is a rare form of oral cancer that occurs anywhere on the upper or lower lip. Lip cancer is often diagnosed at later…
Cancer development requires genetic changes in several different oncogenes and tumor suppressors. Mutated cells occur with any change in the DNA sequence of a cell. Therefore, mistakes may cause mutations during cell division, or they may be caused by exposure to DNA-damaging agents in the environment. Thus, cancer is a disease of many cellular mutations.

Cancer Tumor Angiogenesis and Blood Vessels
Tumors arise from a small population of cancer stem cells (CSCs) or tumor-instating cells. Cancer cells can rapidly reshape, destroy or integrate into existing blood vessels. Tumor angiogenesis and blood vessels create a blood supply to the cancer tumor also causing spread, or metastasize, to new tissues through the blood. (more…)
Healthy normal cells have a structure determined by their DNA so do cancer cells CTC. They need energy to exist and live, which they derive from chemicals in the food you consume. All cells need a system to deliver nutrients such as amino acids, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, and minerals to them.
Skin cancer is the out-of-control growth of abnormal cells in the epidermis, the outermost skin layer, caused by unrepaired DNA damage that triggers mutations. These mutations lead the skin cells to multiply rapidly and form malignant tumors. The main types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma (BCC) in the lower part of the epidermis. Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) are the flat cells that form the surface of the skin. Cutaneous melanoma is cells that make pigments in the skin. Merkel cell carcinoma (MCC) arises from the endocrine (hormonal) cells and nervous systems in the epidermis. Most Dermatologists provide Mohs Surgery or also Chemosurgery. (more…)
