      Depends on age. Statistically women under 40 are at higher risk, but men over 40 are at higher risk.

      I've always heard it has more to do with skin type and lifestyle. Cancer doesn't discriminate or color within the lines.

      the crazy thing about melanoma is it seems to me that people who are younger and younger are getting it! I do think Clyde is correct....anyone can get it.
