Melanoma is the third type of skin cancer, and also the most deadly. About 120,000 new cases of melanoma are diagnosed in the US every year, and nearly 77,000 of these cases are invasive melanomas. In America, 1 in 50 people will get melanoma in their lifetime. Just over 10,000 deaths are expected in 2016, which averages out to about 1 death per hour (technically, one every 52 minutes!)!

BCC is a form of skin cancer that starts in the basal cell layer of the skin, which is the lowest layer of the epidermis. Typically a slow-growing cancer, it is quite treatable if detected early. At an advanced stage, it can cause damage to nearby important structures like the eye, ear & mouth.
