Robert E. Nevin, Managing Partner of Dermatology Associates of Indy discusses the 1st Annual Sergeant Perry Hewitt Skin Cancer Screening

"We have an obligation to draw attention to the fastest growing cancer in the United States" said Robert Nevin, "and we are doing it while providing a service to the Greenwood Community."
Skin cancer is on the rise, according to the American Academy of Dermatology, with more cases diagnosed annually than breast, prostate, lung and colon cancer cases combined. Melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer because of how fast it spreads to other parts of the body, accounts for only 2% of skin cancer cases but is responsible for the majority of skin cancer deaths.
“While skin cancer is the most common of all cancers it is also the easiest to cure, if diagnosed and treated early” added Nevin, “but people must take that first step and get the diagnosis from a professional.”
Free skin cancer screenings can be scheduled with Dermatology Associates of Indy by calling (317) 215-5834. The practice is conveniently located at 1700 W. Smith Valley Road, at the intersection of State Road 135 and W. Smith Valley Road.
