What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Superficial Spreading Melanoma (SSM)?

Living a full, healthy, and happy life — not just surviving — starts with knowing vital information about your disease and the available treatment options.

Superficial spreading melanoma is the most common form of melanoma and accounts for 70 percent of all cases. Arising from pigment cells called melanocytes, this potentially serious skin cancer grows horizontally across the top layer of your skin before moving into the deeper layers.

What are the Signs of Superficial Spreading Melanoma?

Here at New Hope Unlimited, the main objective of our alternative cancer treatment is to address the symptoms of superficial spreading melanoma. SSM has many identifiable symptoms, such as:

  • Shape: SSM can appear flat or raised with irregular shapes and borders. Sometimes, it can look like a freckle.
  • Color: It may be black, brown, tan, blue, red, white, or a combination of these colors.
  • Location: In most cases, SSM appears on the legs of women, the torsos of men, and the upper backs of both sexes. It can also occur in an existing or new mole.
  • Changes: SSM progresses at a slow pace, usually over a span of several years.
  • Itchy or stinging sensation: A mole or unusual growth from SSM is sometimes itchy and may sting.

What Caused Your Skin Cancer?

The exact causes of superficial spreading melanoma are unknown. However, genetic mutations and environmental factors seem to play a significant role in its development.

The primary risk factors for superficial spreading melanoma include:

  • Having 50 or more moles
  • Having a personal or family history of melanoma
  • Excessive exposure to UVA and UVB
  • Having light-colored skin, hair, and eyes
  • Being middle-aged (40 to 50 years old) or older

How Do Doctors Diagnose Superficial Spreading Melanoma?

Receiving an early diagnosis is critical to improving a lentigo maligna melanoma prognosis. To produce accurate findings, a dermatologist and skin cancer specialist will examine you and ask a series of questions, including but not limited to:

  • “Do you sunbathe or use tanning beds frequently?”
  • “When did you first notice the changes in your skin?”
  • “Has your skin abnormality changed in appearance?”
  • “Has it bled, been painful, or itchy?”

In the suspicion of skin cancer, undergoing a sentinel lymph node biopsy is usually necessary. A computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan can also help determine whether cancer has spread.

If you receive a superficial spreading melanoma diagnosis, the next most important step is to plan your treatment.
