Non-melanoma skin cancer killing more people than melanoma, new study finds

New research shows that non-melanoma skin cancer (NMSC) is now claiming more lives than melanoma, a more severe form of skin cancer.

The global study uncovered that in 2020, NMSC was responsible for over 63,700 deaths, surpassing melanoma, which resulted in 57,000 deaths during the same period.

Researchers believe that these figures may actually underestimate the true impact due to the underreporting of NMSC cases in cancer registries which is extremely alarming.
