En Español Skin Cancer Picture of family walking on the beach

Skin cancer strikes more people worldwide than any other form of cancer. Although more common in fair-skinned people, anyone can develop skin cancer.

In the US alone, one million US adults will be diagnosed with the disease this year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The main cause of skin cancer is ultraviolet (UV) radiation from sunlight, especially when too much time is spent in the sun. Avoiding sun overexposure is the best defense against skin cancer. And, catching skin cancer early can provide a better chance for successful treatment.
