As part of Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month®, Lake Regional Cancer Center in Osage Beach’s scheduled a skin cancer screening from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. next Friday, May 13. Space is limited, so appointments are required. Skin cancer accounts for over half of all cancers, making it the most common form of the disease. Lake Regional Oncologist Dr. Michael Wang, says annual screenings are a good way to catch problems when they’re more easily treatable. You should also check your skin at least once a month for new growths, spots, bumps, patches or sores that don’t heal after two or three months. To participate in Lake Regional’s free skin cancer screening, call 573-302-2784 to schedule an appointment.
