False

False. Everyone is at risk for skin cancer. When detected early, skin cancer is highly treatable. However, skin cancer in people of color is often diagnosed at a more advanced stage, which can make it more difficult to treat. Skin cancer in people of color is most often found on areas of the body that are not typically exposed to the sun. For example, the bottom of the foot is where 30 to 40 percent of melanomas are diagnosed in people of color.
