Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer. There are three major types of skin cancer — Basal Cell Carcinoma, Squamous Cell Carcinoma and melanoma. Out of these, Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. Melanoma appears on the skin as a new spot or growth or a change in an already existing mole. It is often fast growing and can spread to other parts of your body, including your bones, liver, and lungs to form a new cancer.
