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.

My friend has a purple spot on the side of his nose, just down from his eye. He won't go to a doctor. could it be skin cancer?

Lesions

Cancer
All suspicious lesions that are pigmented - and have changed in appearance (border irregularity) or grown deserve a biopsy to ensure its not a cancer. See your primary physician to be sure.

DOCTER said I have skin cancer in the eye lid , after 4 surgerys .& freezing it's moving I have an open ulcer below my eye brow it's in the bone ?

Likely Basal cell Ca

Open-uri20121028-4370-axkbfk
You have most likely basal cell carcinoma locally invasive , do not spread like melanoma squamous cell Ca probably localized to skin only other wise you might have surgical excision. with this presumption don't worry it will heal.

A rare form of skin cancer is melanoma and can spread to anywhere including bones and brain. This needs to be evaluated to insure these signs and symptoms are not related.

Dr. Mike J. Bowman answered:

What happens if skin cancer is left untreated?

It will spread

Melanoma
Different cancers spread differently. All cancers will grow locally and cause damage to nearby structures. Cancers can spread to lymph nodes which drain a particular body area as well (i.e. squamous cell, and melanoma). Some cancers (particularly melanoma) will jump to distant sites early (brain, lung, liver, etc). This is distant metastasis, and imparts poor prognosis.

Is skin cancer life threatening?

Yes, it can be

Melanoma
Melanoma skin cancer is very curable when diagnosed early but is quite vicious if diagnosed late. Avoid excessive sun exposure or use sun protection. Make sure your doc does a skin exam yearly and point him to any new or changing skin lesion. This is specially true in high risk people: fair skinned, blonde/red haired, blue eyed folks and those with family history or history of sunburns.

How is skin cancer spread through the body?

Skin cancer spread

Cancer
Skin cancer can spread via local extension. A basal cell carcinoma given enough time, can spread around nerve endings and other structures deep into vital territory and cause loss of the eye and even spread to the brain in very rare cases. Other tumors such as melanoma and squamous cell carcinoma can invade lymphatic vessels and blood vessels and spread to other organs.

How do you screen for skin cancer, is it important to screen for skin cancer?

Dermatologist & yes

155784822
Those at risk should, it includes fair (light colored, freckled) skinned individuals. Sun damaged skin and those with nevi and moles. The main way is to look at all the skin and look at lesions and moles by a specialist, the dermatologist. The patient should also keep an eye on lesions, enlarging or growing, asymmetry, color changes, bleeding, larger than a pencil eraser should be checked.
