Am I at Risk for Skin Cancer?
Even when we know we are taking proper care of our health, there is the ever-present fear of “what if”? Diseases like skin cancer can go undiagnosed for years. Knowing your risk level will help make you aware of the signs and symptoms of skin cancer so you can catch it in time.
In the U.S. alone, more than 3.5 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed annually, affecting an average of over two million individuals each year and making it the most common form of cancer. Nearly one out of every five Americans will develop a type of skin cancer in their life. These numbers have only increased annually.
