Each year over 5.4 million cases of non-melanoma skin cancer are treated in more than 3.3 million people. One in five Americans will develop the disease in the course of a lifetime and one person dies of melanoma every 54 minutes, according to the Skin Care Foundation. An estimated 9,730 people will die of this type of cancer in 2017.
