Basal cell carcinoma on the nose-cancer

If you are worried about  Skin Ulcers, Skin Growths and Sores on Skin or Hard lumps under the skin, you have come to the right place. It is important to find out the underlying cause even if it’s not painful. Skin ulcers can develop because of skin cancers, infections or inflammation. Sores and hard bumps under the skin can be caused by skin cancers such as actinic keratosis or squamous cell carcinoma. Skin ulcers may be a sign of Basal Cell Carcinoma.

Not everything is skin cancer though- Leukemia, scabies, burns and frostbites also cause sores on skin. Skin growths can be caused by benign lesions such as skin tags. Sores on skin are also common among people suffering from diabetes, lupus and hypertension, or as a side effect of a certain drug or medication. These are obviously not all cancerous.

Clients' Say

  •  Very convenient for busy people. Easy to use and the response came very quickly. Re-assuring, but thorough with explanations. I would recommend this to my friends if they needed a consultation that could fit in their work schedules.

  • The best asset of the online service is being able to follow up on the email consultation with a phone call. Sometimes there are additional questions and details that are needed which really help to speak to someone in person. This is the main reason I choose this service instead of other on-line services. If I can get email advice and a follow-up phone call to discus ...

I looked into the cost of consultations at private hospitals and found that the prices were extremely high. When I found this site I was initially unsure about seeking a consultation online, ...

  • Fast. professional, understanding and most of all very caring. Such a vital first class service. Would highly recommend to anyone. Dr put my mind at rest and reassured me. Thank you so much.

  •  Dr Attili is God's gift to Americans in the UK that cannot comprehend the red tape, or let's wait and watch attitude which seems to personify the NHS. Fortunately I was blessed with top of the line medical care in the USA and so when I came to the UK and needed help with my skin, I was left chasing NHS appointment admin staff, secretaries, and even van drivers w ...

  •  I was very apprehensive at first but must say the response I receive was brilliant, e-mails and replies within minutes, was asked all the right questions, I also received a telephone call from the Dr in the evening asking for more information about my son's skin condition. Excellent Service

  • I received a fast initial response and several further replies. The emails had a friendly and personal tone and I felt that Dr Attili really wanted to help me. My experience of Consultants in the past has been that they are looking for a quick solution which isn't always the correct one. I was definitely skeptical beforehand but couldn't find any negative reviews so g ...

  • Thank you so very much for your care and concern. She has been put on Propaderm 1 in 10 and is using the petroleum jelly as a moisturiser as you suggested. I have to say that it is all looking much better apart from her hands which are extremely dry, sore and peeling. I want to thank you for the way that you have listened to my concerns as we have all been so very wor ...

Secondly, it's nice to know there is no immediate concern. And thirdly, the link provided was very useful. It certainly got me thinking, I should definitely be more cautious in the sun. ...

  •  Excellent!!! Very quick, great value, excellent responsiveness when I had a problem, but most importantly it was the best advice I've had yet! I am so very grateful. Having battled with my daughter's rampant Molluscum for months, she's been absolutely covered with them, they are finally being treated. The cream you recommended has had a dramatic impact on all t ...

  • ‘Best dermatologist (and doctor) I have had contact with. Strongly recommended! I have been to dozens of doctors because of my neurological condition, so I have had my fair share of contact with doctors. But I have never ever come across any doctors with a professionality level and courteousness anywhere close. Shortly put: Strongly recommended! 1 out of 1 peopl ...
