There are a variety of skin cancers. The most common types are basal cell carcinoma (BCC), squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) and malignant melanoma. Skin cancer rates are increasing. In fact basal cell carcinoma is the most common type of cancer in the world and it is estimated that 1 in 57 Americans will develop melanoma in their lifetime. The role of excessive sun exposure on the development of skin cancer is undeniable. The use of routine sun protective practices is highly recommended.
