a: Skin cancer ~
b: a weed

What:

"Skin cancer is like a weed," says Michael Hadley, MD, assistant professor and specialist in dermatological surgery at University of Utah-Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City. "It's easy to pull off the top, but it's essential to get all the roots in order to stave off potential recurrence," which is not to say liquid treatments for AKs aren't effective; just to point out a biological truth."
