The American Cancer Society estimates about 3.5 million new cases of skin cancer are diagnosed each year, making it the most common type of cancer. The good news is it's possible to find this type of cancer early. Be aware of new growths, spots or bumps on your skin. If you see anything that changes in size, shape or color, see a medical professional. You should also discuss regular skin cancer screenings with your doctor if you are at an increased risk.
