Bookmark and Share
Your risk of getting skin cancer is real. Current estimates are that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer. You can prevent and detect skin cancer:

  • Prevent. Seek shade, cover up, and wear sunscreen.
  • Detect. Look for new or changing spots on your skin.
  • Live. See a dermatologist if you spot anything changing, itching, or bleeding.
