Skin Cancer Prevalence

> 50%

More than half of all Americans who live to age 65 will develop some form of skin cancer

Three types of skin cancer

Skin cancer is the world's most common cancer. Every year, 125,000 people die of skin cancer, which is equivalent to one person dying from the disease every four minutes. There are two main types of skin cancer: Non-melanoma skin cancer and Melanoma skin cancer. Non- melanoma skin cancer includes: Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and some other rare types. Melanoma skin cancer is different since it develops from skin cells called melanocytes. Hence, the type of skin cancer a person gets is determined by where the cancer begins.

Although malignant melanoma accounts for only a small percentage of skin cancer, it is far more dangerous than other skin cancers and is the leading cause of death from skin disease.
