Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Skin cancer - including melanoma as well as basal and squamous cell carcinomas - is the most common type of cancer, and each year the month of May is set aside for Skin Cancer Awareness.
  • Raise awareness of ways to screen for skin cancer early.
  • Raise awareness of prevention methods.
  • Share facts on skin cancer.
  • Skin cancer is generally more common in men, but before the age of 50, rates are higher in women than in men.
  • If skin cancer is diagnosed and treated early, it can often be cured.
