Skin cancer is on the rise.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in five
Americans will develop skin cancer in his/her lifetime. In
fact, more than 3 million Americans will be diagnosed this
year alone, and melanoma will account for
more than 76,000 cases of invasive skin cancer.
But as dangerous as it can be, it is also very curable
if caught early. We want you to know the importance
of examining your skin and having changes checked
by your doctor. Checking your skin monthly can
save your life!
