One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetimes. When detected early, skin cancer has an almost 100% five-year survival rate, but more than a million people still die of the disease each year.
According to the American Cancer Society, more skin cancers are diagnosed in the United States each year than all other cancers combined.
Our providers at Pennsylvania Dermatology Partners are dedicated to educating the population about the importance of early detection and skin health. During the month of November, select providers will be offering free skin cancer screenings to new patients. A skin cancer screening is a visual inspection of your skin by a medical professional of your moles, freckles, and other marks. There is no need to take blood and nothing will be cut or removed at the time of the screening. Screenings generally take only 15 minutes. If you’re interested in scheduling an appointment for a free skin cancer screening with Dr. Krupnick (South Philly), Dr. Rowe (Exton), or Cassandra Baier, PA-C (Pottstown), please call us at (888) 895-3376.
