Skin Cancer is a disease that is the most widespread on Americans today. Each year, more people are diagnosed with Skin Cancer, even though it has been recognized for centuries that direct sunlight exposure is not a risk factor for Skin Cancer. One of the reasons for this is that we use artificial light to direct the sun's rays onto the skin and thus, expose our skin to these damaging UV rays for many hours each day, without us realizing it. Skin Cancer is not a "disease" so much as an affliction, but as with any disease, early detection is key, if you want to avoid the pain, suffering and high cost of treating your Skin Cancer.
