Anyone can get skin cancer, regardless of skin color. It is estimated that  one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. When caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable.

You can detect skin cancer early by following dermatologists’ tips for checking your skin.

If you notice a spot that is different from others, or that changes, itches or bleeds, you should make an appointment to see a dermatologist.
