Skin cancer is a risk for many people. Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, is expected to be diagnosed in nearly 77,000 Americans this year. In Indiana alone, nearly 1,500 people will be diagnosed with melanoma.
To help combat this, the American Cancer Society is again teaming up with the local hospitals to host Skin Cancer Detection Days. For several years, the American Cancer Society has been partnering with local hospitals to provide free skin cancer screenings for several communities throughout Central Indiana. Providing free cancer screenings is just one of the many ways that the American Cancer Society is saving lives and creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays.
Here are the skin cancer screening locations:
