There are several types of skin cancer that are considered non-melanoma. However, the most common non-melanoma skin cancers are basal cell carcinoma (BCC) and squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). BCC is a type of skin cancer that grows very slowly and almost never spreads to distant parts of the body. SCC is more likely than BCC to invade deeper layers of skin and metastasize. In this quiz, these questions ask mainly about BCC and SCC skin cancer.
