Free Skin Cancer Screenings

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, and it has a better than 98 percent cure rate if it is detected and treated early, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.

During Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, Premier Health, Wright State Boonshoft School of Medicine and Wright State Physicians are offering free skin cancer screenings. Screenings involve a full body skin assessment performed by a dermatologist.

An optional DermaScan screening will also be available. During a DermaScan screening, the individual places his/her head inside a special viewer with ultraviolet light that reveals sun damage not visible to the naked eye. This is used as an awareness tool only.
