Case Study #1 – Skin Part 1: Questions: 1. What are some differences between Judy and Mariah that might make Judy more "at risk" for skin cancer than Mariah? Judy is red haired and pale. It shows that she has less melanin in her skin. Mariah has deeper skin and dark hair. This causes Judy to get sunburnt a lot easier which makes her have a bigger risk. 2. What observations did Judy make concerning her mole? The mole was bigger, itchy discolored, and an irregular shape. Part 2: Questions 1. Considering the differences between a benign tumor and a malignant tumor, why might a benign tumor be easier to treat? Benign tumor is easier to treat because it is not cancerous and it stays one spot. It is a clump of cells that can easily be removed compared to a malignant tumor that is very cancerous and travels throughout the body. Malignant tumor is harder to find and you will also need to do lots of chemotherapy treatments to kill remaining cells.
