Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer diagnosed in the United States. In fact, it is estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime.
Fortunately, if caught and treated early, skin cancer is completely curable, which is why it is very important to have your skin checked regularly by a dermatologist. Even if you have never had skin cancer in the past, having your skin checked annually is the best way to ensure that any problems are caught and treated as early as possible.
