Skin Cancer

The skin is the largest organ in the body. Skin cancer is the most common of all human cancers. Some form of skin cancer is diagnosed in more than 3 million people in the United States each year.

Cancer occurs when normal cells undergo a transformation during which they grow abnormally and multiply without normal controls.

After the removal of skin cancer, you can be left with a defect or an open wound.
