Skin cancer is affecting young women, older men and everyone in between. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime; 13 million Americans are living with a history of nonmelanoma skin cancer, and nearly 800,000 Americans are living with a history of melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer.
The good news is that Skin Cancer can be prevented with clothing, which offers the best defense. The more skin you cover, the better.
