Dr. Madalyn Doublett and Dr. Matthew Golden, members of the General Surgery team at Norton KDH, will provide the screening.

The free screening primarily focuses on traditional sun-exposed areas - including the head and neck, face, ears, arms and legs. Participants who have an area of concern in a different location should alert the staff upon arrival. Screenings are completed in private rooms and participants will be provided appropriate privacy.

If a suspicious mole or lesion is found, the participant will be asked to follow-up with either their primary care provider or one of the general surgery providers at the screening.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. When detected early, skin cancers are often successfully treated. Left untreated or undiagnosed, even common skin cancers (such as basal call carcinomas) can become disfiguring. Melanoma is the most dangerous form skin cancer and can spread to other parts of the body. Learn the ABCDE's of melanoma. Early detection is critical.

Any new mole or area of concern should be discussed with a medical provider or dermatologist. Routine use of sunscreen, particularly from a young age, can reduce your risk of developing skin cancer. Play it safe in the sun and protect your skin
