In 2019 We found 45 Melanomas, 323 Squamous Cell Carcinomas and 425 Basal Cell Carcinomas in our office. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. It does not play favorites. Anyone can get melanoma (even those with darker skin) and you can get it anywhere on the skin and even some non-skin areas such as inside the eye. It is important to know this because every year over 10,000 people die in the United States from melanoma with the incidence of this deadly cancer rising at a steady rate. The good news is that with early detection and treatment survival rates for melanoma can be more than 90%. This is why it is important to get checked at least annually and to have your whole body checked, including those areas that are unexposed to the sun.
