The man had a squamous cell carcinoma on his forehead, which needed to be surgically removed after it grew dramatically larger in size in just 6 weeks.
Dermatologist Dr. Sonia Batra explains this is the second most common form of skin cancer and often rapidly grows.
She stresses if you have a growth that is doubling in size or something that appears like a pimple or acne but does not heal after a month to be sure to get it checked out. The Doctors also note if the growth is scaly or flaky to be sure to have it examined by a doctor.
The Doctors are happy to share that the man in this story was successfully treated and is now doing well.
