CentraCare Offering Free Skin Cancer Screenings in St. Cloud for Melanoma Monday

Published in Media Releases

CentraCare is offering a limited number of free skin cancer screenings to people who have not been screened for skin cancer by a dermatologist in the past three years.

Board-certified dermatologists will provide the screenings on Monday, May 1, and Tuesday, May 2, at CentraCare – Plaza Clinic Dermatology, 1900 CentraCare Circle.

Interested participants must call 320-229-4924 to schedule an appointment time. Walk-in appointments will not be accepted.

The screening coincides with Melanoma Monday, a campaign by the American Academy of Dermatology to raise awareness about skin cancer.

The number of people who develop skin cancer continues to increase. Utah, Vermont and Minnesota are the states with the highest rates of skin cancer. Men are more likely to develop and die from melanoma than women.
