Skin cancer is serious and can be deadly. The two most common kinds of skin cancer are basal cell cancer and squamous cell cancer. Basal cell cancer is a slow-growing cancer that seldom spreads to other parts of the body. Squamous cell cancer also rarely spreads, but it does so more often than basal cell cancer. These two types are non-melanoma skin cancers and easily treated. There are different choices and options for treatments depending on the type and severity of skin cancer. Melanoma is a very serious form of skin cancer that accounts for most skin cancer-related deaths. Melanoma affects all age groups, and can be cured and treated in its early stages.
