Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, affecting 1 in every 5 Americans. When caught early, most skin cancers can be cured, even melanoma (the deadliest form of skin cancer). Monthly self-exams and annual exams by a dermatologist will help detect and treat skin cancer early.
