Last year, more than 2 million people in the United States were diagnosed with skin cancer. Forty to fifty percent of people who live to the age of 65 will have at least one skin cancer diagnosis, and it is the most common form of cancer for young adults 25 – 29 years of age.
The good news is that, found in the early stages, before it’s had a chance to penetrate the skin, the survival rate is 99%. However, for those who are not diagnosed until it has progressed to late stage cancer, survival dips to 15%. Early diagnosis is the key! Call us to schedule your skin cancer screening.
