In brief: Majority are cured

Majority of skin cancer- like squamous cell, basal cell cancer- even melanoma- will be cured with surgical resection- if caught early.
However if melanoma/cancerous mole is not caught early and already spreads to other distant organs then that would make it incurable. Other skin cancers such as skin lymphoma (cutaneous t cell lymphoma) - can be also difficult to cure- however it is treatable.
