Dermatology Associates Hosting Free Skin Cancer Screenings

As the weather warms up, people will be spending more time outdoors. Although there are many benefits to sun exposure, it is important to understand and be aware of the risks. 

According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer diagnoses have been rising for several years. Approximately 1 in 5 Americans will suffer from skin cancer during their lifetime. Regular screenings can help detect skin cancer early, making the treatment more effective.
