Sanford offers free skin check in Fargo on Melanoma Monday
The event will be held Monday, May 2, at Sanford Health Fargo Dermatology & Laser Clinic.
FARGO — Sanford Health will host a free skin screening in Fargo as part of National Skin Cancer Awareness Month.
The event will be held at Sanford Health Fargo Dermatology & Laser Clinic at 4656 40th Ave. S. on Monday, May 2, from 2:30 to 7 p.m.
That date is designated as Melanoma Monday by the American Academy of Dermatology annually on the first Monday in May, according to a Sanford news release.
The two most common types of skin cancer, basal cell and squamous cell carcinomas, are highly curable, but they can be disfiguring and costly to treat.
Melanoma is more dangerous and results in more deaths but is highly treatable if caught early, the release said.
A skin check can be scheduled by calling 701-234-8860.
