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 2 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!
