Skin cancer used to be incredibly rare for anyone in their 20s, 30s, or early 40s. That’s not the case anymore: Young women are getting melanoma, and squamous- and basal-cell carcinomas (less-aggressive but still potentially deadly forms of skin cancer) are increasing.

Just stop and think about that for a second: An age group that almost never got skin cancer before is increasingly being diagnosed with the disease. Melanoma is now the third-leading cancer diagnosis in women under 49.
