iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The Surgeon General is calling skin cancer a "major public health problem" and says tanning is a direct cause.
A report from the office of Surgeon General Boris Lushniak says unlike other forms of cancer in the United States, the rate of skin cancer is on the rise, with 5 million people getting treated each year.
About 63,000 people are treated for melanoma and about 10% of those cases are directly linked to indoor tanning.
Lushniak says all states should ban minors from using tanning beds and the report urges everyone to wear sunscreen outside.
