Rate of skin cancer cases in the U.S. in 2015, by ethnicity

Incidence rates of skin cancer in the U.S. in 2015, by ethnicity (per 100,000 population)

by Statista Research Department, last edited Apr 17, 2019
Rate of skin cancer cases in the U.S. in 2015, by ethnicity As of 2015, non-Hispanic white residents had the highest incidence rates of skin cancer among all ethnicities. Skin cancer is one of the most commonly occurring cancers in the world. Furthermore, the United States is among the countries with the highest rates of skin cancer worldwide.
Skin cancer in the U.S.

There are a few different types of skin cancer and some are considered more deadly than others. Basal and squamous skin cancers are considered more common and less dangerous than melanomas. Among U.S. residents, skin cancer has been demonstrated to be more prevalent among men than women. Skin cancer is also more prevalent among older adults, with those aged 65-69 years having the highest disease burden. With treatment and early detection, skin cancers have a high survival rate. Luckily, in recent years the U.S. has seen a reduction in the rate of death from melanoma.

Skin cancer prevention

Avoiding and protecting exposed skin from the sun (and other sources of UV light) is the primary means of preventing skin cancer. The good news is that a recent study showed that the majority of U.S. adults used some sort of skin protection. Likewise, there has been a noticeable reduction in the use of tanning beds in recent years.
