ROCHESTER — According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is the most common of all cancers; more than 3.5 million skin cancers are diagnosed each year. Though melanoma accounts for less than five percent of skin cancers, it causes the most skin cancer deaths. Early detection often leads to an effective treatment plan. In an effort to promote early detection and prevention efforts, Frisbie Memorial Hospital will be hosting skin cancer screenings in May during Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month.
On May 22 and May 24 from 6 to 8 p.m., Frisbie Memorial Hospital will offer skin cancer screenings to the public at no charge. The screenings will be conducted at Frisbie Memorial Hospital's Center for Cancer Care. Board certified dermatologists and clinicians, from Dermatology and Skin Health, will provide the skin cancer screenings.
Registration is required as space is limited. To register, call 332-3100, ext. 4120. Leave your name, phone number indicate the preferred date and time to be screened.
