MERCY REGIONAL CANCER CENTER HOSTS FREE SKIN CANCER SCREENING

Port Huron, MI...It's time to check your spots! The Mercy Regional Cancer Center invites you to attend a FREE Skin Cancer Screening, Wednesday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Women's Health Center at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital. Local dermatology physicians will be on hand to discuss your skin cancer concerns and provide a "suspicious spot" check. Appointments are limited.

The American Cancer Society reports that skin cancer is the most common of all cancers in the United States. Although skin cancer is extremely prevalent there is good news! Skin cancer is rarely lethal, with an extremely high recovery rate when diagnosed early. Early detection is key.

This FREE skin cancer screening program is co-sponsored by the Mercy Regional Cancer Center and the American Academy of Dermatology.

To register for the Free Skin Cancer Screening, please call 1-888-MERCYME (1-888-637-2963). Three scheduling sections are available. Registration is required. No walk-ins will be accepted.
