For Hometown News

MARTIN COUNTY -- May 6 was Melanoma Monday and the official launch of Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month.

McKay Dermatology & MedSpa in Stuart will be offering free skin cancer screenings to the public throughout the month of May.

"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, 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."

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.

Individuals are encouraged to call Dr. McKay's office at (772) 283-0109, to schedule an appointment or visit www.mckayderm.com to learn more about what to expect at a screening.
