Come to HealthStreet on Thursday, July 18th between 6-8:30 p.m. and get a FREE skin cancer screening! Chomp Melanoma, a group composed of UF medical and undergraduate students, will be hosting the event, which is open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis (no appointment required).
UF Health dermatologists, as well as other local practitioners, will be on hand to perform skin cancer checks and to provide information about how to perform self-checks at home. Patients will not need to disrobe unless they have a concerning spot they would like looked at, in which case private rooms will be available.
Skin cancer is the most prevalent type of cancer in the United States and is especially impactful in Florida due to our increased exposure to the sun’s UV rays. The American Cancer Society reports that skin cancer is the most common type of cancer.
Melanoma skin cancer, though it’s less common than other forms, is the most likely to grow and spread. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 96,000 cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in the United States in 2019.
Come learn about proper suncare for your skin and how to check your skin for dangerous sun damage. All are welcome to attend!
