The Integumentary Morgan Davison Due: February 23, 2018 Period 4th -------------------------------- -------------------------------- Have you ever heard the phrase “I’m all skin and bones.” Well, that's not true.

These functions do all super important things because if we didn't have any skin, hair, sweat glands, or nails we could easily get very hurt. The integumentary system interacts with many other systems than just one. The integumentary works with the circulatory system by allowing it to transport blood into and out of the cells and also allow carbon to get out of the blood and into the air by letting the skin take the carbon out by sweat. With the skeletal system, it keeps the bones hard and strong and also, produces the vitamin d. The nervous system controls the body temperature. The excretory system removes the waste (oil,salt,and water) from the body. Finally, the immune system prevents pathogens from entering into the…show more content…

Then by stage ll, the tumors are huge. At stage II, the tumor attaches to the lymph nodes. If you don’t treat it well it could seriously hurt
