What is Bowen’s Disease?

Bowen’s disease, also known as squamous cell carcinoma in situ, is a rare skin condition that primarily affects the outermost layer of the skin. This condition is characterized by the presence of precancerous cells, which have the potential to develop into invasive skin cancer if left untreated.

Bowen’s disease is named after John T. Bowen, an American dermatologist who first described this condition in 1912. It is important to note that Bowen’s disease is non-invasive, meaning it does not spread beyond the epidermis, or the top layer of skin.

In this article, we will delve into the various aspects of Bowen’s disease, including its symptoms, non-pharmaceutical intervention methods, and ways to potentially avoid it. By understanding the nature of this condition, individuals can take proactive steps towards early detection and effective management.
