More than 1 million skin cancers are diagnosed in the United States every year. An equal-opportunity cancer, skin cancer can affect people of any race, sex or age. In fact, melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – is the second most common cancer in women ages 20 to 29. 

The good news is that when detected early, skin cancer has an almost 100 percent five-year survival rate. Research shows that most skin cancers are found by an individual. When people regularly check their skin for suspicious moles or lesions, they can literally save their own lives. However, it can be something that people overlook because they don’t have the knowledge or tools to perform monthly skin self-exams.
