Free Skin Cancer Screening!

On Thursday, May 30, 2024, from 12:30-4pm, Alomere Health is offering eligible patients free skin cancer screenings.

Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States. Current estimates are that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one person dies from melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – every hour. Yet when caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable.

“Skin cancer can be easily visualized and has the potential to be caught early,” says Jazmine, Nesvik, DO. “Yet many people don’t know how to spot skin cancer, including what to look for on their skin or when they should see a dermatologist.”

To increase people’s chances of spotting skin cancer early, when it’s most treatable, the American Academy of Dermatology recommends everyone learn the ABCDEs of melanoma, which outline the warning signs of this disease:

  • A – is for Asymmetry: One half of the spot is unlike the other half.
  • B – is for Border: The spot has an irregular, scalloped or poorly defined border.
  • C – is for Color: The spot has varying colors from one area to the next, such as shades of tan, brown or black, or areas of white, red or blue.
  • D – is for Diameter: While melanomas are usually greater than 6mm (or about the size of a pencil eraser) when diagnosed, they can be smaller.
  • E – is for Evolving: A mole or spot on your skin looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color.

“It only takes a few minutes to check your skin, and it could save your life,” said Dr. Jazmine Nesvik. “If you notice anything changing, itching or bleeding on your skin, make an appointment to see a board-certified dermatologist, as these are often early warning signs of skin cancer.”

It’s estimated that more than 1,640 new cases of melanoma will be diagnosed in Minnesota this year. Although skin cancer is more common among people with light or fair skin tones, everyone is at risk for this life-threatening disease.
