White people constitute the vast majority of all skin cancer patients, with a rate over 3x as high as any other race. Interestingly, while melanoma rates have remained the same level among blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, and Asians, for whites-- both men and women-- incidences increased substantially, 1.9% and 2% respectively. 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer.
