During the spring months, everyone is very excited to get back outside and play in the sun. Although Vitamin D is essential to many aspects of life, like anything else, too much of one thing is never good.
Randolph Health Cancer Center will host a free skin cancer screening on Thursday May 23rd. According to the American Cancer Society, more than one million Americans develop skin cancer each year. While skin cancer is the most prevalent form of cancer among both women and men, it is easy to detect and treat.
If you have a mole or discoloration that you’re concerned about, come have it checked on May 23rd between 5:30 – 7:30 p.m. at Randolph Health Cancer Center located at 373 N. Fayetteville Street, by Dr. Todd Williams, Gay Markham, NP, and Donna Jennings, PA-C. This screening is available for anyone who has not had a skin cancer screening in the last two years and who has an unusual mole or discoloration.
“Although there are many types of skin cancer, the three most common types are Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC), Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC) and Malignant Melanoma (MM),” explained Dr. Todd Williams. “One thing that is typical of skin cancer is that it tends to grow and change over time. Moles or spots that change over time should be evaluated by your healthcare provider,” he added.
This screening is one of Randolph Health Cancer Center’s community education events offered each month to promote health and wellness. Participants must pre-register for this free screening. For more information and to register, please call (336) 633-7788.
