As part of a campaign to encourage early detection and prevention of skin cancer, St. Charles Cancer Center, the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute, Central Oregon Dermatology and Deschutes Dermatology Center are offering education and free screenings Saturday, May 5, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Some people are at higher risk for skin cancer. They are those with light hair, skin and eye color, a history of severe sunburns, 50+ moles or a history of skin cancer. Others may have genetic factors that increase risk. These individuals should get total body skin exams at least annually and possibly more frequently.
The War on Melanoma™, including the free skin cancer screenings, will be held at the St. Charles Cancer Center at 2500 NE Neff Road in Bend. Appointments can be made at http://bit.ly/StCharlesCancerScreeningTix. The event is free and open to both insured and uninsured residents of Central Oregon.
