Few US Hispanics Screened For Skin Cancer

Researchers at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey reported that only 1 in 14 Hispanic adults nationwide in the United States  have been screened for skin cancer. This trend has appeared despite the disease's tendency to be more severe and virulent in this population. Lack of screening can be attributed to a number of factors, including perception of the disease in this population and socioeconomic factors. No one is immune to skin cancer. If you see a spot, get it checked!
