Lake Regional Cancer Center will host a free skin cancer screening on Friday, May 4. This screening is open to the public, but space is limited and appointments are required. Appointments will be set on a first-come, first-served basis between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.
"There are many people in this area who have never had a skin cancer screening, and we hope they take advantage of this free event," said Marcy Maxwell, director of Lake Regional Cancer Center.
Each visit will last approximately 15 minutes. Participants can request screening for specific areas of concern or a head-to-toe assessment. Each participant will receive an assessment report, and if the Lake Regional staff person performing the screening finds something concerning, the participant will be encouraged to follow up with a primary care provider or dermatologist.
