"Current estimates are that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime." 1,2 
 

"Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States, affecting 40 million to 50 million Americans."

 

 

 

Nodular acne is a sever and disfiguring skin disease. Although acne is considered by many to be a disease of adolescents, a person can be affected with acne into his or her 30s and 40s. Males tend to get more severe acne than females.


Acne develops in the oil producing structures of the skin call sebaceous glands, which vary considerably in structure and size. One or more sebaceous glands accompany each hair follicle. These glands secrete an oily mixture call sebum which normally passes though the hair follicle to the skin surface. During adolescence, the sebaceous lands grow larger and produce more sebum, especially in the face, chest and back areas. Acne occurs when the normal route of sebum to the skin surface is blocked. In the case of nodular acne, the sebum builds up in the gland and mixes with dead cells. This accumulation finally ruptures the follicle wall, forming an inflamed nodule under the skin. Scarring usually results from these nodules.


Acne is not cause by a poor diet, dirt or an oily complexion. Factors that may aggravate acne include emotion stress, fatigue, cosmetics, drugs such as iodides and bromides, and certain foods.


Accutane (isotretinonin) is a medicine use to treat sever nodular acne which has not responded to other treatments. To help you get the greatest benefit from Accutane it is important for you to know how to take it correctly and what to expect. For your own health, safety and well-being, please read the following information carefully.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer and can be the most curable if lesions are detected and removed in the early stages. There are three types of skin cancer; basal and squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. they are all frequently associated with overexposure to sunlight. People with fair skin, clue eyes, and blond or red hair are at highest risk.
Squamous cell carninoma

is the next most common form of skin cancer. This type of malignancy usually shows itself as a firm, red nodule or flat lesion with a scaly of crusty surface. It may also ulcerate and never heal completely. Squamous cell carninoma is more aggressive than basal cell carcinoma, which means it is more likely to spread to other areas of the body such as lymph nodes or internal organs.
Basal cell carcinoma

is the most common form of skin cancer. It usually looks like a bump or flat sore that grows slowly, sometimes opens and festers and never heals. It rarely spreads to other parts of the body, but must be treated, because if left alone, it can grow deep into tissue and spread to underlying structures.
Malignant melanoma

is the most serious of the three skin cancers and it is the least common. It can look like an irregular, enlarged, or inflamed mole with red, white or bluish speckles, or shiny pearl or black bumps or dark sores (appearing on the palms of hans, soles or feet, tips of fingers and toes, and mucous membrane,) or large brown spots with darker speckles. It can be characterized by certain feeling in the ares, such as itchiness, tenderness, and pain. Additional signs of melanoma include scaling, oozing, and bleeding.
If melanoma is neglected or unnoticed, it can lead to more serious problems (even to death) by spreading downward into other area of the skin or to lymph nodes or internal organ. When you catch changes early and see your doctor immediately before it spreads, melanoma may be cured with surgical treatment.
