ALL cancers are deadly. There are three types of skin cancer. Basal Cell Carcinoma(BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) , and Maligant Melanoma. BCC and SCC are ususally not fatal unless they have metastasized (spread to other parts of the body). Melanoma is responsible for 75% of deaths due to skin cancer, but if it is caught early it can be easily cured with a minor surgery.

Yes. If skin cancer is not treated, it can spread to internal organs and become deadly.

Melanoma is the most dangerous of all deadly skin cancers. It is 100% curable though if you get your skin and moles (most common form of melanoma) checked by your dermatologist regulary.

Bone cancer can be deadly but it is not always. If it is deadly or not will depend on the type of bone cancer, where the cancer is located, treatment received, and the stage of the cancer.

Yes. Any form of prolonged UV ray exposure will lead to skin cancer. In fact, not even being in the tanning booth but walking outside without a hat can increase the risk of melanoma (a deadly type of skin cancer).

Basal cell skin cancer generally does not spread (although it has in some rare cases). Squamous cell skin cancer is typically not dangerous, although more agressive than basal cells. But any type of skin cancer should be removed as it can cause serious problems, and possibly lead to death in rare cases. Melanoma is the deadly one, but is curable early on.

The nature of skin cancer is that Skin cancer occurs when the skin is overexposed to the sun or ultraviolet rays which damages the skin cells and causes skin cancer. The most common and dangerous skin cancer would have to be Melanoma.

It is only deadly if ingested. The skin will stop alpha radiation. It does not have much penetrating power. When inside the body it can cause cellular damage which can lead to cancer.

Skin cancer is one of the worst types of cancer. Actually, all cancer is bad. Skin cancer can be caused by not wearing sunblock. Don't get skin cancer too late, because it will be too late for you.

Carcinomas affect your skin and linings of your organs. Example: skin cancer, lung cancer.
