In honor of National Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month, Memorial Sloan-Kettering is holding free skin cancer screenings.
Individuals at increased risk for skin cancer who are most likely to benefit from screening are those with the following:
- a family history of melanoma in two or more blood relatives;
- multiple atypical moles;
- or numerous actinic keratoses (precancerous lesions that are scaly patches of skin, gray to pink in color, on sun-exposed areas of the body).
