Skin Cancer is also the easiest to cure, if diagnosed and treated early.   When allowed to progress, however, skin cancer can result in disfigurement and even death.

There are three main types of skin cancer: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Because each has maay different appearances, it is important to know the early warning signs.
