Each year, more than one million Americans are diagnosed with skin cancer, and it affects people of all ages. Indeed, a headline from USA TODAY, the Nation's No. 1 Newspaper, says, "Milder skin cancers [are] becoming more common among young [people]; consequences could lie ahead." An estimated 8,650 people die each year from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. The good news is that the vast majority of skin cancers can be completely cured if discovered early enough. In this book, you'll read case studies of people with basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma and learn how these skin cancers develop. You'll also discover the risk factors for skin cancer and information on how to prevent it, giving the facts you need to know to protect yourself, your friends, and your family from this most common of all cancers.
