Is it true that only people with light skin get skin cancer?
No. Anyone can get skin cancer. It's more common among people with a light (fair) skin tone, but skin cancer can affect anyone. Skin cancer can affect both men and women.
How can people with dark skin get skin cancer?
Do you live in the greater Phoenix region? Are you travelling to Phoenix to receive medical treatment? Are you supporting or providing care to someone who is?
Are you a patient or healthcare provider looking for cancer-related resources on the Community Cancer Connections website? Thank a student scholar.
