Is cancer painful to the touch? if you have skin cancer, does it hurt it you touch it?

Skin Cancer as a local disease is not painful.
However, some complications such as secondary infection may cause pain in regional lymph nodes (lymphadenitis)
Also some metastasizing types may result in pain in a distant site according to the the organs affected and the nature and extent of the tumor.

I don't know...WHY?!?!?

i believe that most skin cancers are pretty painless at least initially. However, if you have one that hasn't been treated and is progressing rapidly, then that may be a different story. I had basal cell cancer years ago and it looked like just an open scratch on my shoulder. It never hurt or anything, but I was terrified with grief wondering whether or not it was fatal. Go to this site for more information on skin cancer:

Haven't had it and hopefully never will, but I have never heard anyone mention it being painful to the touch. I think it's usually discovered, not by pain reaction, but by the changes in pigmentation on the surface.

Interesting question though!

OK. What Gives? People answer the question honestly with what they know, and they even provide helpful links, and others give them a thumbs down?? How rude!!

Not usually, but depends on type and extent

My Mother had skin cancer - and it was very painful and tender to the touch.

Small basal cell skin cancers are painless. I'm sure if you let one get a couple cm. in size it would probably hurt if you bumped it.

Squamous cell skin cancers may or may not be painless. The ones that do happen to hurt feel like a sharply painful unhealed burn or sore.

I would imagine that melanoma in situ (localized) are painless.


Any skin cancer that goes untreated long enough will become painful at some point.
