    Basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of skin cancer. It typically appears as a small, shiny bump or a pinkish patch on the skin. It is usually caused by long-term exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. Basal cell carcinoma is slow-growing and rarely spreads to other parts of the body. However, if left untreated, it can cause damage to surrounding tissues and may require more extensive treatment. Regular skin checks and sun protection measures are important in preventing and detecting basal cell carcinoma early.

A first degree burn is a type of burn that only affects the outer layer of the skin, known as the epidermis.

    Bedsores are also called ________

    Explanation
    Bedsores, also known as decubitus ulcers, are skin injuries that occur when pressure is applied to the skin for an extended period of time. These ulcers commonly develop in individuals who are bedridden or have limited mobility, as constant pressure on certain areas of the body, such as the hips, tailbone, heels, and elbows, can lead to tissue damage. The term "decubitus" refers to the act of lying down, which highlights the connection between prolonged pressure and the development of these ulcers. Therefore, "decubitus ulcers" is the correct term used to describe bedsores.

    A keloid scar is a type of scar that can develop as a complication of a piercing or deep injury. Keloid scars are characterized by their raised, thick, and often shiny appearance. They occur when the body produces an excess amount of collagen during the healing process, causing the scar tissue to extend beyond the boundaries of the original wound. Keloid scars can be itchy, painful, and may continue to grow over time. Treatment options for keloid scars include steroid injections, silicone sheets, cryotherapy, and laser therapy.

Septicemia occurs when bacteria from the infection enters the bloodstream and spreads throughout the body.
