Malignant Melanoma is the most common cancer in young Caucasian women (ages 25 to 29)

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, Malignant Melanoma is the most common cancer in white women ages 25 to 29 years and the second most common form of cancer in women 15 to 30 years of age. Interestingly, these are the ages that many women will go the beach to get tan or use tanning beds.  Despite all of the well-known risks of skin cancer, people still think that having a tan looks good and is healthy.
