A large study shows that younger white men are 55 percent more likely to die from skin cancer. Guys, if you need another reason to use sunscreen this summer, try this one: a new study from the American Medical Association shows that while women get skin cancer more, young men survive it less.  Men account for less than 40 percent of melanoma cases, but they make up about 64 percent of melanoma-related deaths. This is important, considering that in the past 40 years melanoma cases have grown by 400 percent among young men and by 800 percent among young women, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation.
