Feeling KOOL – Skin Cancer

A new report blames sunbathing and tanning beds for rising rates of skin cancer.

Dermatologists also say they’re seeing an increasing number of young patients with skin cancer. 

Five-million people are treated each year for skin cancer, though doctors say the disease is mostly preventable.
