MARTIN COUNTY --
McKay Dermatology & MedSpa will offer free skin cancer screenings to the public throughout December and January at their Stuart and Hobe Sound offices.
"Skin cancer is unique in that it is the only cancer you can see on the surface of the skin. A skin cancer screening is a visual, non-invasive exam that only takes a few minutes, yet it could save a person's life," said Dr. Elizabeth McKay, a board-certified dermatologist.
"One person dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, every hour. Yet melanoma is often successfully treated, if caught early."
This screening event is part of the American Academy of Dermatology's SPOT Skin CancerTM initiative. The screening program has provided more than 2.2 million screenings since its inception in 1985.
This program offers the opportunity for dermatologists to educate the public about skin cancer prevention and early detection while saving lives by finding skin cancers in their earliest, most treatable stages.
