The National Farm Medicine Center offers free skin cancer screenings in Wisconsin.
The earlier skin cancer is detected, the more successfully it can be treated. Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with 1 in 5 people developing it. Those who work in the sun are more at risk.
Screening are conducted by physicians from the Marshfield Clinic Dermatology Department. Dermatologists will educate about what to look for, such as any changes in the size, color, borders, or shape of a mole. If the doctor sees anything suspicious you will be encouraged to follow up with your personal physician or dermatologist. Click here for information on spotting Skin Cancer.
