Time Lapse of Skin Cancer Development (Basal Cell Carcinoma, Melanoma, and Squamous Cell Carcinoma)

It is impossible in real life to create a time lapse photo sequence of skin turning into cancer as there is no way to know if any given area of skin will turn into cancer. Obviously, somebody with such future knowledge would have to start taking such photos now in the same spot over next 10-25 years to watch it slowly turn into cancer, and then to put it together to create a time lapse video.

However, technology has now enabled such hypothetical time lapses to be created. Using generative AI technology, a time lapse sequence of skin cancer development from normal has been created for 3 different skin cancers: melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma

Check it out! Melanoma time lapse is shown above. The other two skin cancers are shown below.
