Event description

Description

Do you have a suspicious mole? Medical providers will be offering spot check cancer screenings. (One spot per participant please.)

Due to limited space, pre-registration is required. Please allow for 30 to 45 minutes to go through the entire screening process including wait time. All ages are welcome.

To register more than one person, please select the quantity of people you are registering in each time slot. You will be required to enter information for each person you are registering.

Melanoma Warning Signs

The most important warning sign of melanoma is a new or changing skin growth. This could be a new growth or a change in the size, shape or color of a spot on your skin. Most of us have spots on our skin. A non-cancerous growth may sometimes look like skin cancer. Almost everyone has moles, and most moles are harmless. But a change in the way a mole looks is a sign that you should see your doctor. Here's a simple ABCD rule to help you remember.

A. Asymmetry: One half of the spot does not match the other half.

B. Border: Normal moles are round or oval in shape and have sharply defined borders. The borders of a melanoma may be uneven, blurred, or notched.

C. Color: Common moles are usually one color throughout. Melanomas may have several colors or an irregular pattern of colors. It may be shades of brown or black, or sometimes with patches of pink, red, white or blue.

D. Diameter: Common moles are generally less than 1/4 inch across (the diameter of a pencil eraser). Melanomas are often larger, but they can also be smaller than this.

E. Evolving: The mole is changing in size, shape or color.
