According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 106,110 individuals (62,260 men and 43,850 women) will be diagnosed with melanoma in the United States in 2021, and approximately 7180 individuals (4600 men and 2580 women) will die from the disease. The risk for developing melanoma increases as individuals get older, with a median age at diagnosis of 65 years. However, it is also one of the most common cancers diagnosed in young adults, particularly in women aged <29 years. Although melanoma accounts for only 1% of all skin cancer diagnoses, it is responsible for a large majority of skin cancer deaths. How much do you know about melanoma?
Lung cancer is the second most common cancer in men and women, and is the leading cause of cancer death, making up almost 25% of annual cancer fatalities. The American Cancer Society estimates that approximately 228,820 new cases of lung cancer (116,300 in men and 112,520 in women) will be diagnosed in 2020 and approximately 135,720 patients (72,500 men and 63,220 women) will die from the disease. Approximately 10% to 15% of lung cancer diagnoses are small-cell lung cancer (SCLC), which spreads faster than non–small-cell lung cancer. How much do you know about SCLC?

Male breast cancer accounts for less than 1% of all breast cancer diagnoses, and 8 out of 10 cases of breast cancer in men are invasive ductal carcinomas.
