About the Clinics
Dermatologists and medical oncologists from Skin Cancer and Dermatology Institute, Carson Tahoe Health, and Cancer Care Specialists will educate about skin cancer and skin cancer prevention, and offer free melanoma screening clinics to recognize May’s Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month.
Skin checks by a licensed dermatologist or other trained medical professional are one of the best ways to detect skin cancer, including basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma and melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, the number of Americans who have had skin cancer at some point in the last three decades is estimated to be higher than the number for all other cancers combined. And melanoma has become one of the most common cancers among the nation’s adolescents and young adults.
