Statistics/Data Skin Cancer

  • More than one million new cases of skin cancer will be diagnosed in the United States this year
  • One in 55 people will be diagnosed with melanoma during their lifetime
  • Contrary to popular belief, 80 percent of a person's lifetime sun exposure is not acquired before age 18 -- the number is closer to 23 percent

  • Survival rate for patients with early detection is about 99 percent. The survival rate falls between 15 and 65 percent or higher, depending on how far the disease has spread
