May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

In an effort to raise awareness about the prevention of skin cancer, the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology is joining the American Academy of Dermatology to spread the word throughout May during Skin Cancer Awareness Month.

It is currently estimated that one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime. Numbers like that make a world without skin cancer seem to be an impossible goal. But it is in our reach. Skin cancer is highly treatable when caught early. The five-year survival rate for people whose melanoma is detected and treated before it spreads to the lymph nodes is 98 percent. Yet, sadly, one American dies from melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, almost every hour.

Join us to spread the word about skin cancer. Protect the skin you’re in and schedule your annual skin screening with one of our doctors.
