What are the symptoms of skin cancer?

The symptoms vary according to the type of skin cancer. Melanoma is distinguished from regular moles by the irregular border of the moles, the different coloration present, large diameter and evolving shape and size. Basal and squamous cell carcinomas can look very different from melanoma and tend to appear as pearly pink bumps or red scaly patches, respectively.
