Health and Fitness News
I will be eternally grateful to you for how you healed by back!

I started training with Coach Berry when I was 61 years old.  For four months, I had suffered a great deal of back pain and knew I need to do something different. When I began with Coach, he asked me how I was feeling.  After a lifetime of training with a number of different trainers I could only say I didn't feel great.  My back pain caused me to see chiropractors and accupuncturists, but I found no relief.  After one deep tissue massage, Coach immediately had me feeling better.  After two months of training Coach had me back to 100%.  He knows what he is doing when it comes to training and injuries.  He trains people to perform exercises correctly to avoid injuries.  I have worked with many different trainers all over the San Diego County and Coach Berry is the best, most effective trainer I have meet.  I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their health and fitness levels.

Now Appearing: Skin Cancer

Unlike many cancers, skin cancer is often right in front of your eyes. But you’ve got to know what you’re looking for to catch it.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer worldwide. In the United States alone, more people get skin cancer than all other types of cancer combined.

Think you’re safe? You could be dead wrong. One out of every five adults develops skin cancer during their life. The top two causes include exposure to the sun’s UV rays and tanning beds. And it doesn’t take a lot of exposure. More than five sunburns in your life doubles your risk of melanoma, the most dangerous skin cancer.

For any type of skin cancer, early detection is key to successful treatment and long-term survival. This is why it’s important to check your skin monthly for signs of cancer. Not sure what to look for with each type of skin cancer? Keep reading.

Melanoma

Melanoma skin cancer is the most deadly, often because it spreads the fastest. It can develop from an existing mole or may appear as a dark spot that wasn’t there before. Use the alphabet to remember the warning signs.

Asymmetry. Moles on your skin should be symmetrical, meaning that each side mirrors the other. If you see a mole with a part that doesn’t match the other areas, get it checked out.

Border. As you do a skin self-exam, look for moles with borders that are irregular, blurry, or ragged.

Color. Healthy moles are a uniform shade of brown. Inspect each mole for changes in color. Cancerous moles may be multiple shades of brown. Some may even look black or have areas that appear pink, red, blue, or white.

Diameter. The majority of melanoma skin cancers are large moles, though not all. Look for moles with a diameter greater than a quarter inch. Picture in your mind the size of a pencil eraser. Anything larger than that should be investigated.

Evolving. Look for moles that change in size, color, or shape. To do this, you’ll need to give yourself monthly skin checks. Take pictures if necessary to help you remember how your moles look.

Basal Cell Carcinoma

Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is the most prevalent type of skin cancer. Fair-skinned people are most likely to get BCC, but people with dark skin are also at risk. Unfortunately, there are no ABCs to help you detect BCC. That doesn’t mean you can’t see it early. BCC has a few telltale signs, including:

  • Raised red patches that may or may not be itchy.
  • Moles with small, shiny, pearly, or translucent bumps that have a pink or reddish tint.
  • In some cases, they contain areas that look blue, black, or brown.
  • Areas of the skin that look like scars or pink growths with edges that are higher than the center.
  • Sores that won’t go away. It may ooze or be crusty.

If you have any of these symptoms, see your doctor immediately. It may be cancer.

Squamous Cell Carcinoma

The second most common type of skin cancer, squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) most often affects fair skin. Parts of the body that see the most sun exposure are at the greatest risk for SCC. This includes the face, ears, neck, back, chest, and arms. Here’s what to watch for.

SCC may look like a rough or scaly patch of skin that may bleed or crust over.
Sometimes SCC grows similar to a wart or it may be a growth or lump with an indentation in the center.

Keep an eye out for open sores that won’t go away or go away and then come back. They may ooze or get crusty.
