4. Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer worldwide. However, if detected early, it can be one of the easiest to cure. Derma.plus developed a study to better understand the geographical and geopolitical factors which make skin cancer incidences more common, and sometimes deadly, in certain regions over others. They did this by looking at a skin cancer susceptibility factor (UV factor, skin tone demographic and incidents) to see where the largest incidences occur. As well as looking at a Socioeconomic Treatment Index (national health spending, individual income) to understand efforts taken to combat the disease. You can see where your country fits in here. South Africa is low on the list but has a higher mortality rate than other countries with more incidences. [Derma Plus]
