Types of skin cancer
Skin cancers include:
- Melanoma information: while this states that melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer, it would be useful to mention that melanoma causes over two thirds of total skin cancer deaths.
- Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC): easily treated if found early but can be fatal if left untreated.
- Basal cell carcinoma (BCC): the most common and least dangerous skin cancer. BCC can be serious, including surgery and scarring, if left untreated.
