Recognizing skin cancer symptoms using model based imaging

When quality skin model is constructed – recognizing skin cancer symptoms can be more comfortable as many factors are indicating about the threat of skin cancer. Of course, this can’t give 100% results, as there are many shortcomings connected with skin lesion variety and interpretation errors. But some guides may help.

Three main factors can indicate the risk of skin cancer. Recognizing skin cancer symptoms can be based on them. They are:

  • Melanin presence in the papillary dermis;
  • The thickness of papillary dermis;
  • Blood behavior around the lesion and inside it.

Firs important factor is melanin presence in the dermis. This is the main factor in recognizing skin cancer symptoms. If there is melanin spread in papillary dermis or even dermis, this is a significant probability of being skin cancer symptoms, but not always. There are several subfactors in this issue like melanin spreading figure, depth, and melanin density within this shape. If there are more irregularities in the spreading area, there are more risks.

Another factor in recognizing skin cancer symptoms is papillary layer thickness. In not going into deep too much there can be said, that thinner this layer, the more significant risk.

And the last figure, which can be noticed even with the eye, is the blood shape. Usually, around risky lesions, there is more intense blood feed. The area around lesion is more reddish, while inside the amount of blood is diminished. It is explained, that there is a more significant demand for blood to grow and divide cancer cells.

But again recognizing skin cancer symptoms is not only inspecting these values, while there can be benign lesions with symptoms indicating skin cancer. These indicators can help in overall diagnosis.


  1. I have this painful white bump next to my nostril. i tried popping it but its just to painful, even around it hurt. Can it be a sign of skin cancer?

  2. I have a slightly painful bump under a large freckle on my left arm, which has been troubling me on and off for a couple of months, it keeps coming up and going down again. Could this be anything to worry about.

  3. Hi Paulette,These bumps are probably due to Dermatitis. Avoiding the causing substance is the mainstay of prevention in addition to medications prescribed by your doctor.

  4. if you have white spots on your back what does that mean ?

  5. I have a freckel/mole on my cheast, that my puppy scrached open about 7 months ago. Ever since then there has been a white ring around it, could that be a sign of skin cancer?

  6. If i have some black and paintful spots on my neck what does that mean?
