We wanted to thank CCMAC and New York State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. for putting together the wonderful skin cancer screening event at Tanner Park this past week. In total, 151 visitors received a free skin cancer screening. 1 out of every 3 were referred to a dermatologist for a suspicious lesion; 4 of which were potentially malignant melanoma.
Identifying and treating a melanoma early can be a life saving event. You can find more information about how to do a self-skin exam and what to look for here.
