Free Skin Cancer Screening on May 4

Stewart Carraway D.O

   Skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the U.S. One in five Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70. Having five or more sunburns in your lifetime doubles your risk for melanoma. However, skin cancer can be treatable if caught early.

   King’s Daughters is pleased to offer a free skin cancer screening on Thursday, May 4 at King's Daughters Family Care Center Cedar Knoll, 10650 U.S. Route 60, Ashland, Ky. The screening will be conducted by family medicine physician Stewart Carraway, D.O., and takes place from 8 a.m. to noon.

   The screening consists of an exam of the affected area(s) as identified by the participant. Recommendations for follow-up, if necessary, will be provided. Spots that are irregularly shaped or have jagged borders; are uneven in color; are larger than a pea; or that have changed in the past few weeks or months should be examined. Appointments are necessary and may be made by calling 606.408.9304.
