Mark Your Calendars for a Free Skin Cancer Screening on May 13th!

Think back to the last time you had your skin examined. Was it a year ago? Two years? Or maybe you’ve never had a dermatologist check your moles and freckles for signs of skin cancer. If that’s true, it’s time to schedule a professional screening at Pinnacle Dermatology.

May 13th is Melanoma Monday at Pinnacle DermatologyAnd the best part is…it’s 100% free!

Each May,  Pinnacle Dermatology joins other dermatology specialists around the world to help raise melanoma awareness and inspire men and women–of every age group–to schedule a complimentary skin cancer screening.

And in honor of national Melanoma Monday (which takes place May 6th), Pinnacle Dermatology is offering free skin cancer screenings Monday, May 13th! This means you the perfect opportunity to have your skin checked for early signs of melanoma or other skin conditions.

What is Melanoma Monday?

Created by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), Melanoma Monday is an annual event during the month of May (i.e. Melanoma Awareness Month) that helps empower patients to take control of their skin’s health and wellness with a free screening! And each year, more and more skincare specialists come together to offer complimentary screenings to patients and share important information about melanoma and how to spot early warning signs.

Why Are Annual Skin Cancer Screenings So Important?

Early detection of skin cancer is absolutely essential. If you did have signs of skin cancer, yearly screenings allow your skincare team to diagnose the condition in its early stages, prescribe the most effective treatment, and help you and your skin get back to looking and feeling its best!

Unlike Basal Cell Carcinoma (BCC) and Squamous Cell Carcinoma (SCC), melanoma can spread to other major organs of the body, including the liver, lungs, and brain (Melanoma Research Foundation). Because of this factor, checking for melanoma through an annual skin screening is the best defense against the disease progressing and affecting your ability to treat it effectively.
