Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in our country. There are many types of skin cancer with the three most common types being basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and malignant melanoma. When these cancers are detected and treated early and not with aggressive growth patterns they are usually not dangerous. Of concern is that some skin cancers can become quite dangerous when more advanced or with aggressive growth patterns.
