With more than 3.3 million people diagnosed annually, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. Fortunately, skin cancer is also one of the most preventable forms of cancer and highly treatable when detected early. Sunscreen alone is not enough, seek the shade and cover up with clothing, a hat and sunglasses. Examine your skin and see your physician every year for a skin exam.
