Skin Cancer

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, affecting close to one in five Americans in their lifetimes. The American Academy of Dermatology reports that nearly 8,500 people get diagnosed with the disease every day. Since 1982, the incidences of skin cancer in the U.S. have more than doubled.

Skin cancer isn’t a disease that affects only people with light skin who stay out in the sun too long, although that population is at a higher risk. In fact, Caucasian men over the age of 50 have the highest risk of developing the devastating condition, while men 80 years old and older are three times more likely to get skin cancer than women of the same age.

Younger Caucasian women are more likely than their male counterparts to get skin cancer. Usually, when people of color are diagnosed with the disease, it’s at a much later stage. On an average day in America, one person dies from melanoma every hour. In 2016, it’s predicted that 10,130 deaths will result from melanoma alone.

All symptoms and skin findings should always evaluated with a thorough consultation and physical examination for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan in order to exclude any underlying serious condition.

Varying Types of Skin Cancer

The two most common types of skin cancer are squamous cell and basal cell cancers. These types of skin cancer typically appear on your face, head, arms, hands and neck, the areas that receive the most sun. A third type of skin cancer, even more dangerous, is called melanoma. It’s also rampant in the U.S., but not as common.
