Could You Have Skin Cancer?

Texas Tech Physicians — Dermatology and UMC Southwest Cancer Center will host a free skin cancer screening from 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. May 11 at the Southwest Cancer and Research Center, 602 Indiana Ave. in Lubbock.

According to the National Cancer Institute, skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S. About 1 million Americans develop skin cancer each year.

Texas Tech Physicians dermatologists will discuss symptoms to look for like a new mole that looks different from other moles; new red or darker color flaky patch that may be a little raised; new flesh-colored firm bump; change in the size, shape, color or feel of a mole; or a sore that does not heal.

Skin examinations and referrals for subsequent treatment also will be provided.

This community service is offered to coincide with National Melanoma/Skin

Cancer Detection and Prevention Month.

No appointments are needed.
