  • The estimated 5-year melanoma survival rate for African Americans is only 69%, versus 93% for Caucasians.
  • Skin cancer represents approximately 2-4% of all cancers in Asians.
  • Skin cancer comprises 1-2% of all cancers in African Americans and Asian Indians
  • 26% of Hispanic patients with melanoma aren’t diagnosed until the cancer has progressed to the late stages. This vastly increases their risk of death.
