States With the Highest Rate of Skin Cancer

QuoteWizard, July 20 2022

Skin cancer rates are rising, but deaths are going down. Our team of analysts looked at skin cancer (melanoma) rates nationwide going back nearly a decade. We found that while the number of skin cancer cases is up 5%, deaths are down 6%.

Key findings:

--Utah, Vermont and Minnesota have the highest rates of skin cancer
--Texas, Alaska and New Mexico have the lowest rates of skin cancer
--Skin cancer rates rose by as much as 21% in Arizona, Hawaii 2nd with 14%
--Nearly 2,500 fewer people died from skin cancer in the last two years

Skin cancer rates nationwide fit a particular pattern. Colder, northern states have a much higher rate of skin cancer than warmer, southern states. We looked at CDC cancer statistics over two four-year periods: 2013-2017 and 2015-2019. We found that cooler states like Utah and Vermont have skin cancer rates nearly three times higher than warmer states like Texas and New Mexico. This is most likely because people living in sunnier states do a better job of protecting themselves from the sun by applying sunscreen, wearing protective clothing and avoiding severe sunburns.
