Abstract: Skin cancer (SC) has been a major problem in the world as a whole it is the most common type of cancer . Black people have a lower risk of skin cancer than the whites because the melanin pigment of the black skin protects against the harmful carcinogenic effects of ultraviolet radiation from the sun . However, individuals that bleach their black skin colour have lost the privilege of this protection and consequently expose themselves to skin cancer. In Nigeria due to young women have this mindset that fair girls are more beautiful the use of bleaching cream increased.
