Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. There are three common types of skin cancer. Their names come from the type of skin cell in which they begin: basal cell carcinoma; squamous cell carcinoma; and melanoma, the most serious common form of skin cancer. Most of these cancers can be prevented by changing behaviors, and most can be cured if diagnosed and treated early.
