Skin cancers are the most common type of human malignancy. The three most common types of skin cancer include basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma. Excessive sun exposure is a well know risk factor for the development of skin cancer. Sun protection, and the use of a broad spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher are important in the primary prevention of skin cancer.
