Everyone, regardless of skin color, can fall prey to skin cancer. Unfortunately, many people are under the impression that people with dark skin are immune to this disease.
However, nothing could be further from the truth. Tragically, even Bob Marley passed away from melanoma skin cancer at age 36.
Did you know that melanoma is the third most common type of skin cancer among all racial groups?
A study from Howard University, Washington, DC, revealed that 89% of basal cell carcinomas on naturally brown skin occur on the head or neck.
