Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer in the United States. Rates are rising every year despite general knowledge of risk factors and precautions to take also rising.
There is also still a misconception in the general public that only people with fair skin are at risk for skin cancer. But specialists point out that although their risk may be higher, skin cancer can occur in all skin tones and at all ages.
As for the skin cancer screening apps that have recently come on the market, professionals suggest using them as an additional screening method, not a replacement for seeing a specialist in person.
