Free skin cancer screening available
CALHOUN — In observance of National Skin Cancer Awareness Month, Gordon Hospital, in partnership with the Skin Cancer and Cosmetic Dermatology Center, will offer free skin cancer screenings May 1 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Harris Radiation Therapy Center.
According to the American Cancer Society, skin cancer is by far the most common form of cancer. The three main types of skin cancers are basal cell skin cancers, squamous cell skin cancers and melanomas.
Basal and squamous cell skin cancers are the most common and are usually found on parts of the body that are regularly exposed to the sun.
Basal and squamous cell cancers are unlikely to spread, but it is still necessary to treat them early to prevent further damage.
Melanomas are not as common, but they are much more dangerous. Though almost always curable in its early stages, melanomas are likely to spread if left alone.
The American Cancer Society estimates that in the U.S. alone in 2017, about 87,110 new melanomas will be diagnosed and about 9,730 people are expected to die of melanoma. Limited space is available. Call 706-879-5850 to register for this free screening.
