Current statistics indicate one in every five Americans will develop skin cancer within their lifetime. So, what is skin cancer, in the basic sense? It is uncontrolled growths of skin cells, usually resulting from DNA damage to skin cells, particularly from sun damage, or tanning bed exposure. If you have fair skin, blue or green eyes, and red or blonde hair, you should take special precautions (see Skin Check), as you tend to be at highest risk for skin cancer.
