A few months ago, Kate Somerville was in a panic.
The 33-year-old mother of two was worried her baby would get skin cancer.
Now she’s a millionaire.
She says she can afford to be honest about her condition.
Her son’s condition is so rare it’s “one of the rarer things in my life”, she says.
“It’s like a miracle.”
But she’s not alone.
As the global skin care industry expands, so do the numbers of people diagnosed with skin cancer, with more than 400,000 diagnosed worldwide in 2015, according to the World Health Organisation.
“Skin cancer is a very serious condition that’s getting worse and worse,” says Dr Jane O’Neill from the University of Manchester.
“But it’s also an epidemic.”
What causes skin cancer?
The skin cancer is usually caused by the same cells that make up your skin, called keratinocytes.
They’re found on the skin’s surface and in the lining of the hair follicle.
But they’re also found in other body parts, such as in the lungs, intestines and intestines of dogs.
“This makes skin cancer the most common cancer in the world,” says dermatologist Dr Joanna Smith from University College London.
“The skin’s basically a rubber band that surrounds and surrounds the body.”
The skin can be treated with a topical or injectable treatment, but the underlying cause is unknown.
The treatment usually involves the injection of an antifungal medication, called erythromycin.
A combination of these medicines is given once a week to the affected area for six weeks, depending on the severity of the skin cancer and the amount of pus produced.
The amount of medication that’s given depends on the size of the tumour.
For example, if there’s a small tumour in the area around the hairline, for example, you’ll need around a teaspoon of erytronil to treat the tumours.
A topical injection is used for larger tumours or areas with more dense, or deep, blood vessels.
A injectable is injected once a day, with no medication.
“Injectable steroids have been around for a while,” says Professor O’Connor.
“You’re able to get rid of skin cancer from the skin, but they’re not usually available for routine use.”
Skin cancers are usually treated with an injectable steroid, but that doesn’t always work, and some injectable treatments can cause side effects.
“A lot of injectable steroids can cause an allergic reaction,” says O’Leary.
“They’re very toxic.”
She recommends that women with an underlying medical condition seek medical advice if their symptoms persist.
If an injection doesn’t work, she says, they can apply a topical cream to the area.
“We know that topical cream is the most effective treatment, and we’ve found it works well for some people,” she says
