Skin cancer is highly curable when caught early. Do you know how to SPOT skin cancer?

As a way to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skin cancer, and to encourage early detection through self-exams, the American Academy of Dermatology designates the first Monday in May as Melanoma Monday®.

The American Academy of Dermatology is coordinating this national effort to raise awareness of skin cancer.

  • Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States.
  • Current estimates are that one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime.
  • Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is the most common cancer for 25- to 29-year-olds.
