More than 5.4 million skin cancers are diagnosed each year in the U.S, according to the National Cancer Institute. Although skin cancer risk factors are present daily, the dangers are higher during summer when people may spend more time in the sun. Skin cancer can occur anywhere on the body, but it is most common in areas exposed to sunlight, such as the face, neck, hands and arms.
