Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. The most dangerous kind of skin cancer is called melanoma. Skin cancer can almost always be cured when it’s found and treated early. Communities, health professionals, and families can work together to prevent skin cancer or detect it early on. healthfinder.gov provides toolkits for several National Health Observances including Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month. The toolkits provide resources for organizations like schools, healthcare providers, health departments, and more to raise awareness about critical public health issues, like melanoma.
