ASDS Skin Cancer Screening Program


Related Information



One American dies of melanoma almost every hour. With early detection, however, melanoma has an almost 100 percent five-year survival rate. The goal of the Choose Skin Health partnership between the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery and Neutrogena is to encourage the public to choose healthy sun-safe behaviors, including skin cancer prevention through free skin cancer screenings, using sunscreen regularly and practicing skin self-exams monthly. Find a free skin cancer screening near you. 



Recent research has shown that the incidence of skin cancer is rising at epidemic levels. In 2011, ASDS members performed more than 2.6 million skin cancer treatment procedures. To help in prevention efforts, the ASDS and Neutrogena are partnering to provide free skin cancer screenings through ASDS member volunteers.
