In honor of National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center will be holding free skin cancer screenings. By appointment only. To schedule an appointment, call 631-863-5100.
Individuals at increased risk for skin cancer are most likely to benefit from screening. Risk factors for skin cancer include family history of melanoma (two or more blood relatives), multiple atypical moles, and numerous actinic keratoses (scaly patches of skin, gray to pink in color, on sun-exposed areas of the body).
