What Bowen's disease looks like
Often there are no symptoms, although the surface crusting may catch on clothing.
A patch of Bowen’s disease starts as a small red scaly area, which grows very slowly. It may reach a diameter of a few centimeters across. It commonly occurs on sun-exposed skin, especially the head, hands and lower legs. More than one lesion may be present. The development of an ulcer or lump on a patch of Bowen’s disease may indicate the formation of invasive squamous cell carcinoma
Diagnosing Bowen's disease
A patch of Bowen’s disease can look rather like other skin conditions, such as psoriasis. For this reason a biopsy may be needed to make the diagnosis.
Yes Bowen's disease can be curred, as it is confined to the surface of the skin, there are a variety of ways in which this can be achieved.
