The Grundy County Health Department is partnering with Cleaver Dermatology to offer free skin cancer screenings to the community.
The screenings are Wednesday, May 22 from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm and will take place at the Grundy County Health Department.
This is a screening procedure only. It will not be a full body exam and does not replace a thorough dermatological 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 ABCDE's of skin cancer detection.
Borders that are irregular or poorly defined,
Color that is varied,
Diameter of the spot (greater than a pencil eraser),
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 ABCDE's, let Cleaver Dermatology take a look at it during our FREE May 22 skin cancer screening. Appointment times fill quickly so please call early.
