April 26, 2014 by SoWal Staff

Visit Coastal Skin Surgery and Dermatology in Miramar Beach for free skin cancer screenings on Melanoma Monday, May 5 from 1-4pm. 

As a way to raise awareness of melanoma and other types of skin cancer and to encourage early detection through self-exams, the American Academy of Dermatology designates the first Monday in May as Melanoma Monday.

Coastal Skin Surgery and Dermatology is supporting the American Academy of Dermatology’s nationwide efforts to raise awareness of skin cancer by offering the community free skin cancer screenings in their Destin/Miramar Beach office located at 12469 Emerald Coast Parkway Miramar Beach, FL 32550. Walk-ins and people of all ages will be accepted.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and current estimates are that one in five Americans  will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer and is the most common form of cancer for 25-29 year olds. In an effort to improve these numbers Coastal Skin Surgery and Dermatology encourages everyone to regularly perform self-exams and schedule yearly skin exams.  Wearing orange on Monday, May 5, and/or getting screened for skin cancer will help support the Academy of Dermatology’s vision of a world without skin cancer.
