# Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. More than one million skin cancers are diagnosed annually.

# Each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon.

# One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime.

# In 2004, the total direct cost associated with the treatment for non-melanoma skin cancers was more than $1 billion.

# The incidence of many common cancers is falling, but the incidence of melanoma continues to rise significantly (3.4% annually), at a rate faster than that of any of the seven most common cancers.

# The majority of people diagnosed with melanoma are white men over age 50.

* In The United States, approximately 62,480 melanomas will be diagnosed this year, with nearly 8,420 resulting in death.3
