Skin cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the U.S. With over 300 days of sunshine in our region, residents must protect themselves from harmful UV rays. According to the National Institute of Health, individuals should be checked for any suspicious skin markings and any changes in the way their skin looks. Early detection leads to more treatment options and better outcomes. If not treated, some types of skin cancer cells can spread to other tissues and organs. Kathleen Ledwick, DCNP of Kadlec Plastic Surgery and Dermatology, will provide spot checks to help keep you healthy. Our community is encouraged to take part in this free screening.
Appointments are required and can be made by calling the Tri-Cities Cancer Center at (509) 737-3420.
