One in five people will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, leading to over two million cases in the US every year. Skin cancer can be very dangerous, especially if not treated quickly and effectively.

If you have a family history of skin cancer, you may want to consider being proactive and have your body checked annually for skin cancer by a dermatologist. This will help ensure that, if you develop skin cancer, it is detected early when it is easiest to treat.

Skin cancer is most commonly found on the face.
