There are three main types of skin cancer:

  1. basal cell carcinoma

About 75% of skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma, or BCC. Usually, BCCs are very slow-growing and don’t spread to other parts of the body. If they are treated early, most BCCs are completely cured.

  1. squamous cell carcinoma.

The second most common type of skin cancer in the UK is squamous cell carcinoma, or SCC. Most people with SCC can be cured with simple treatment. Usually, SCCs are slow-growing and don’t spread to other parts of the body.

  1. malignant melanoma

This is a less common type of skin cancer than the two other types mentioned in this section. Melanoma behaves differently to basal cell and squamous cell cancers. It can grow quickly and needs to be treated early

Some of our skin cancer claims cases:

  1. We were instructed by a woman who was diagnosed with a malignant melanoma. Her GP failed to follow National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) Guidance despite the woman meeting the criteria for suspected melanoma on a number of visits to her GP and requiring an urgent referral to hospital. Sadly, by the time the woman was diagnosed, her prognosis was terminal.
