A free skin cancer screening sponsored by Lane Regional Medical Center and Advanced Dermatology is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday at Dr. Laurie Harrington and Jennifer Burk Henderson’s office, 20474 Old Scenic Highway, Zachary.

The screening coincides with Melanoma and Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month in May and is part of a national campaign to encourage early detection and teach prevention of skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in this country.

“The key to the successful treatment of most types of cancer is early detection and treatment,” Harrington said. “With skin cancer, early detection is easy because the signs are visible on the surface of the skin.”

Advanced Dermatology and Lane Regional Medical Center invite the Zachary community to take advantage of this free by appointment only screening. Registration is required, and space is limited.

For information or to register, call (225) 658-4587.
