Today is Melanoma Monday and May is skin cancer awareness month; where to get a free skin cancer screening in New York?

spotme-in-community-target-page-bannerFailure to diagnose skin cancer at an early stage can have deadly consequences.  People living in New York  will have plenty of opportunities to get a free skin cancer screening during the month of May which is National Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

Malignant Melanoma is the fastest growing cancer for men, and the second fastest growing cancer for women. If it is detected early when it hasn’t spread to the lymph nodes, the survival rate is 98%.  A yearly annual skin exam performed by a physician offers the best chance of an early diagnosis. Self-exams should also be performed every month. If you notice a change in an existing mole or discover a new one that look suspicious you should show it to a physician immediately.

Here is a list of places where you can get free skin cancer screenings in New York in May and June. For other States click here.
