In brief: Skin malignancies

Skin cancers are cutaneous malignancies that are closely linked to sun exposure over the course of a lifetime.
Major types of skin cancer include basal cell carcinoma (the most common malignancy in all human beings), squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma (the deadliest skin cancer). If you are worried about something on your skin, visit a dermatologist who can examine your area of concern.
