Overview

Skin cancer is the most common human cancer, striking about 1 million Americans a year. In its early stages, skin cancer is highly treatable and has encouraging survival rates; later stage skin cancers can be aggressive and resistant to treatment, or even deadly. Fortunately, skin cancer is one of the easiest cancers to prevent: Protecting the skin from the Sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation goes a long way toward cutting one's chances of developing this disease. Skin Cancer provides readers with a thorough overview of skin cancer, up-to-date information on its causes and its treatments, and practical tips on reducing risk factors for the disease.

The term cancer encompasses a wide range of related diseases characterized essentially by abnormal, invasive cell growth. Each volume in The Biology of Cancer focuses on a different type of cancer or on a specific aspect of the disease, with an emphasis on the biological science behind it. From how skin cancer occurs to the stages of cancer development, these books track the origins, progression, and nature of cancer. Looking at risk factors such as lifestyle choices and genetics, The Biology of Cancer explains how doctors and scientists understand cancer, what forms of prevention and treatment work, and what new avenues researchers are pursuing to fight cancer. These concise books explain the science of cancer in clear language for readers looking to understand the basics of the disease and the battle against it.
