    Who’s at highest risk for developing skin cancer?

    “Who’s at most risk for developing skin cancer? In our practice, and in many physicians who deal with skin cancer, there is a particular patient sub-type that we look for as being a high-risk patient for developing skin cancer and for needing Mohs surgery.
