A Bus Rider with Skin Cancer
by Jemmer Pablo
(San Jose, CA, USA)
I was sitting at the bus station one day waiting for the bus to arrive so I could go to school.
I noticed the person who was sitting next to me. She had a thickened skin on her lower lip that I could not resist to look at. She was smoking heavily too just like me.
Since she noticed me looking at her, she bloated out that she had Basal Cell Carcinoma which she further explained was a form of Skin Cancer
She had been exposed to sunlight all the time when she used to pick apple in their farm a few years back.
Now that she had the cancer she stopped doing that and she was on her way to see the doctor in El Camino Hospital.
She also warned me because she saw me smoking as she did. Although I told her at least I didn’t get exposed to the sun so much so I guess I am safer.Basal Skin CancerCanine Skin CancerCat Skin CancerCauses of Skin CancerEarly Signs of Skin Cancer
