Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. There are three major types of skin cancer. The names of the three types come from the type of skin cell in which they begin: basal cell carcinoma; squamous cell carcinoma; and melanoma. Basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma can be cured if caught early and properly treated. Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, can have a high cure rate if it is detected early.
