Forefront Dermatology Offers Life-Saving Skin Cancer Screenings
In the United States, over 5 million people are treated each year for skin cancer. To put that in perspective, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime. Of the three types of skin cancer – basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma – melanoma is the deadliest. To help keep the patients and communities they serve healthy, Forefront Dermatology will be hosting free skin cancer screenings in select offices throughout Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Wisconsin, on Saturday, April 11th from 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM. Our expert team of dermatologists, nurses and medical professionals has more than 30 years of experience diagnosing and treating skin cancer. With skin cancer, prevention and early detection work hand-in-hand in. Prevention is always the first step. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, wear sunscreen and protective clothing, and don’t use tanning beds. When detected early, skin cancer is very treatable and curable.
