Skin cancer is the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the U.S.

With over 300 days of glorious sunshine in our region, residents must protect themselves from harmful UV rays. According to the National Institute of Health, individuals should be checked for any suspicious skin markings and any changes in the way their skin looks. Early detection leads to more treatment options and better outcomes. If not treated, some types of skin cancer cells can spread to other tissues and organs. Vicki Haines, DCNP of Atomic Dermatology, will provide spot checks at the
Tri-Cities Cancer Center. Our community is encouraged to take part in this free screening. Be healthy. Get screened!

Appointments are required and can be made by visiting www.behealthygetscreened.com or by calling the Tri-Cities Cancer Center at (509) 737-3420.

The Tri-Cities Cancer Center is able to offer programs like this, at no cost, thanks to community support through the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation. Donations to the Tri-Cities Cancer Center Foundation stay local and provide valuable non-reimbursed cancer programs and services for patients, their families, and the community.
