Should You Worry About That Mole? Here's How To Tell

• Business Insider
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 20% of Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their lives if current trends continue.

While not all skin cancers are deadly, melanoma, the most dangerous and third-most-common kind, is extremely deadly if not found early. The American Cancer Society estimates that in the United States in 2014, about 76,100 new cases of melanoma will be diagnosed, and 9,710 people are expected to die from the disease.
