Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States and as summertime usually means more time outside and in the sun — are you making sure you are staying safe with your skin?
Trinity Health is hosting a free Melanoma and skin cancer screening for the public. Nurse Practioner Ann Welch said it’s important to have a full-body exam once a year to catch anything suspicious.
“To look at your moles. Here in dermatology I get the advantage of having a dermatoscopy, so I get to magnify moles and look at specific patterns to help determine if that’s a mole that should be biopsied to rule out melanoma or not,” Welch said.
The screening is next Wednesday, June 30. Appointments are required and available by calling 701-857-3535. Minors under 18 must have a parent or adult with them.
