Approximately 2 million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year making it the most common form of cancer in the United States. It is also the easiest to cure if diagnosed and treated early.
Skin Cancer is the result of abnormal skin cells that grow uncontrollably. It is caused by damage to skin cell’s DNA, most often caused by ultraviolet radiation from both natural and man-made sources, i.e. sunshine and tanning beds.
The most common types of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Melanoma, another type of skin cancer, is less common but the most deadly.
