Skin Cancer: Prevention Strategies, Early Recognition,
Teresa Soriano, M.D., UCLA Clinical Professor and Clinical Director of Dermatologic Surgery discusses the risk factors, signs, and treatments of skin cancers. Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. Each year in the US, 3.3 million people are treated for non-melanoma skin cancer. Melanoma accounts for most of the skin cancer deaths. When detected and treated early, most skin cancers are highly curable. Knowing and understanding risk factors and early detection are essential to protect yourself.
