Free skin cancer screening for Melanoma Monday – May 6th

Free skin cancer screening for Melanoma Monday – May 6th

Please join Clarus Dermatology and the American Academy of Dermatology in painting the nation orange for skin cancer awareness on Monday, May 6 – Melanoma Monday®.

It is currently estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Numbers like that make a world without skin cancer seem to be an impossible goal. But it is in our reach. Skin cancer is highly treatable when caught early. The five-year survival rate for people whose melanoma is detected and treated before it spreads to the lymph nodes is 98 percent. Yet, sadly, one American dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, almost every hour.

Our clinic will be offering free skin cancer screening examinations between 2pm and 4pm on Monday, May 6th in honor of Melanoma Monday®

Interested patients or organizations can call us at 612.213.2370 for more information or an appointment. We will also be accepting walk-in patients for the screenings as well. You can follow our Facebook event page as well!

Help us spread the word and encourage others to prevent and detect skin cancer.
