Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, but the good news is that when it’s found and treated early, it can be cured. Skin cancer screenings can help identify cancer early on, when treatment is most effective. These type of screenings can be done at your physician’s office, at a dermatology offce, at some annual Focus on Health sites or at community outreach events.
