Free Skin-Cancer Screenings Set

In recognition of National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Prevention and Detection Month, University of Pittsburgh Physicians and the UPMC Cancer Centers are offering free skin cancer screenings in Oakland and Shadyside during the month of May.
The screenings are open to the public and will take place 4 – 6 p.m., May 3, in Oakland at the Falk Clinic dermatology department on the 5th floor and May 17 in Shadyside at the Hillman Cancer Center’s outpatient services department on the 2nd floor.
More than 1 million Americans are diagnosed each year with skin cancer. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer, accounting for nearly half of all cancers diagnosed in the United States. When detected early, skin cancer can be treated effectively.
Pre-registration is not required. People will be seen on a first arrival basis. For more information, call the UPMC Cancer Centers Cancer Information and Referral Service at 412/647-2811.
