Skin cancer rates are skyrocketing, both in the U.S., where more than 3.5 million skin cancers are diagnosed annually, and around the world. It is the most common form of cancer in the United States with more new cases than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon.
1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
What causes skin cancer?
Skin cancer is a malignant condition that begins with the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells.
What are the different types of Skin Cancer?
Early detection of skin cancer is key!
Cure rates are high, and recurrence rates are low for cancers that are CAUGHT AND TREATED EARLY. It is important to check for changes in size, shape and color of pigmented areas.
The Skin Cancer foundation highly recommends an annual full-body skin exam by a dermatologist.
