About one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. More than 90 percent of all skin cancer cases are due to an overexposure to sunlight. This makes it especially important for Florida residents to take preventative measures. In many cases, skin cancer is highly curable if detected early. Screenings are a patient’s best chance of detecting these cancers before they become deadly. Riverchase Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery is offering free cancer screenings to the Southwest Florida community in an effort to help new patients detect and prevent these potentially fatal cancers.
“Florida has the second highest rate of melanoma in the country. Early detection of melanoma can save a person’s life, and screenings are one of the most effective ways to detect skin cancer early,” says Dr. Menendez. “It is especially important for those who are at risk for overexposure to the sun to take preventative measures, such as regular screenings, to reduce their risk of skin cancer.”
