Porbably canker sore

Canker_sore
Most likely it is just an aphthous ulcer or a canker sore. They are usually found on on movable tissue and self resolve after 14 days. It wouldn't hurt to get a dentist to look at it.

I have brown spots on lips? I have 4 of them and they look kind of like freckles and are flat as well. Is this some sort of skin cancer?

See Ender's Game

Cancer
the movie - teen actor has it too. It is unlikely to be cancer. Peutz Jaeger's syndrome, associated with GI AVM's is a possibility. Ask your PCP/iternist first. But no rush.

Bottom lip had skin cancer, treated w/aldara over 1 yr ago. Cancer gone. Lip still huge & chapped. Nothing helps it. Tried everything w/dermatologist.

See Surg/Derm

Imiquimod
This may very well be side effects of Aldara. You should go see your dermatologist to find out. More importantly, you need to be sure that you don't have an underlying skin cancer. And if there is no recurrence, you can talk to a plastic surgeon or in some cases oral surgeons or ear/nose doctors about surgical options such as cheiloplasty. where some or all of the damaged mucosa could be shaved.

Could any1 in the skin cancer sector take a look at my pictures in my health records and tell me what u think?

On-line advice

Cancer
Your concerns really need to be addressed with a face to face visit with a local physician. No prudent doctor would give you advice on-line based on photos alone. But if you have a lesion that bleeds, changes color, grows rapidly, or cycles through healing and breakdown repeatedly, you should see a doctor for further management.

ABCD's

Open-uri20130520-2285-h6a6o1
Remember your ABCD's when thinking of melanoma. Look for moles with Asymmetry Boarders that are irregular Color differences within the same mole Diameter greater than 6mm Also any new mole or old that starts to itch, bleed or ulcerate should be of concern. Another rule is the ugly duckling rule. Which refers to a mole that looks distantly different from the others on your body.

Skin cancer under hair, possible?

Sometimes

Cancer
Skin cancers most often develop on areas of sun-exposed skin including the scalp, face, lips, ears, neck, chest, arms, dorsum(top) of hands, and legs. However they can form in areas that are rarely sun-exposed such as the palms, fingernail/toenail beds, and even the genitals. Not all skin changes are due to skin cancer. A physician can check any skin changes that worry you and make suggestions.

Dr. Mike J. Bowman answered:

What types of skin cancer does mohs micrographic surgery remove?

BCC & SCCA

Cancer
Basal cells (BCC) and squamous cell (SCCA) are the two most common skin cancers treated with Moh's. As these are the most common types of skin cancer, that works out very well. Moh's surgery is helpful to minimize the size of the defect (yet still effect a cure) in areas where tissue conservation is important, like the face. It is more expensive, however.

Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

My Mum biopsy revealed Squamous cell carcinoma grade 2 (in her mouth). I know it's a type of skin cancer but will it spread?

Needs to be staged.

Skin
The grade is an assessment of the degree of differentiation of the cell line based on its appearqnce and is used as an estimation of the aggressiveness. Grade 2 is typically worse than grade 1 but not as bad as grade 3. This does not necessarily mean that it has or will spread. Complete excision +/-radiation along with staging (local spread to adjoining structures or lymph nodes) is advised.

Dr. James E. White answered:

What are the chances of developing skin cancer following CO2 laser skin resurfacing? I believe my fair skin due to my Irish heritage makes me more prone to burns and skin cancer. Can CO2 laser cause such side effects?

Fair skin = risk

Laser_skin_resurfacing
CO2 laser or fractionated CO2 laser are popular laser treatments for sun damage, wrinkles, dark spots and pre-cancers. Your skin type, fair with Irish heritage puts you at risk for skin cancers--not the laser resurfacing. Sun block protection is the most important measure to prevent skin cancer, regardless of whether or not you've had CO2 laser resurfacing.

What are the signs of Skin Cancer?|

New or changes

Cancer
Get to know your skin by self-exam at least once a month. Look for new lesions or changes in pre-existing ones (color, shape, size, itches or hurts or bleeds). Some skin cancers start out by looking like a pimple but a pimple will go away, a skin cancer won't. If a lesion continues to persist or get bigger over a period of a month or 2, you should get it looked at by a dermatologist.
