What Is Skin Cancer?
Skin cancer is a type of cancer in which malignant or abnormal cells grow in the skin.
Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), over one million people in the US are diagnosed with skin cancer every year. Research has led to better methods of diagnosing and treating this disease. The NCI says skin cancer is now almost 100% curable if found early and treated promptly.
