Skin Cancer Screenings May 19
The Grundy County Health Department is partnering with Cleaver Dermatology to offer free skin cancer screenings.
The screenings will take place on Friday, May 19 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Grundy County Health Department located at 1716 Lincoln Street in Trenton. This is a screening procedure only. It will not be a full body exam and does not replace a thorough dermatologic exam. During this screening event, a physician will examine specific skin spots that patients have identified as a concern.
What type of skin spots might constitute cause for concern? Check the ABCDEs of skin
cancer detection, look for –
Borders that are irregular or poorly defined,
Color that is varied,
Diameter of the spot (greater than a pencil eraser), or
Evolving mole or skin lesion, one that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color.
If you have a mole or lesion on your skin with one of the ABCDEs, consider having a physician from Cleaver Dermatology take a look at it during our free May 19th skin cancer screening. Those wishing to participate are encouraged to call early to secure an appointment.
