Protect your skin — it could save your life.
What Are the Odds?
Just in case you were wondering, skin cancer is life-threatening. It can spread just like any other cancer if it’s not caught early. Here are some important statistics.
- Detect skin cancer before it spreads, and the five-year survival rate is 98 percent.
- If skin cancer spreads to a lymph node, a major tissue, or an organ, the five-year survival rate drops to 15 percent.
