April is National Cancer Control Month. It is a time to focus on increasing awareness about the ongoing battle against cancer, the measures we can take to reduce our risks, and the ways to show support for victims and survivors. In honor of the National Cancer Control Month, we offer facts and updates in skin cancer and skin cancer prevention.
Every time we get rashes on our skin our go-to response is to get the ointment or pop a pill to alleviate the symptoms. But not all rashes are indicative of a simple allergic reaction. For some individuals that rash may already be a sign of cancer.
One particular disease that is often misdiagnosed as a simple rash is mycosis fungoides.
