SOUTH HILL – Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the U.S.
It is estimated that approximately 9,500 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with skin cancer every day. Research estimates that nonmelanoma skin cancer, including basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, affects more than 3 million Americans a year. Do you have spots on your skin that concern you? How do you know when you should see a dermatologist? Can skin cancer be prevented? What should I do to properly care for my skin?
