The following are some of the signs and symptoms of uncommon skin cancers:
- Kaposi sarcoma is a malignancy that affects patients with weaker immune systems or those who have had organ transplants. Purple or red spots appear on the mucous membranes or the skin as a result of this cancer.
- Sebaceous gland carcinoma is a type of skin cancer that develops in the oil glands. It appears on the skin as firm, painless nodules, especially on the eyelids.
- Merkel cell carcinoma is a type of cancer that starts in the neck, trunk, or head. Merkel cell carcinoma is characterised by firm, glossy nodules that occur on or beneath the skin, as well as in hair follicles.
