Mary Beth Cole, MD, will provide free skin cancer screenings on Friday, Oct. 6 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Murray County Health Department, 709 Old Dalton Ellijay Road, in Chatsworth. The event is sponsored by Hamilton Medical Center.
“Although skin cancer rates have been increasing during the past decade, the good news is that you can do a lot to help protect yourself,” said Cole. “Sun protection and skin cancer screenings help reduce the risk of invasive skin cancer. If caught early, skin cancer is very treatable.”
Skin cancer is the most common form of human cancers, affecting more than one million Americans every year. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer at some point in their lives. Skin cancers are generally curable if caught early.
