According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one person dies from melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – every hour. Yet when caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable. Detecting skin cancer only takes a few minutes and a skin cancer screening by a dermatologist could save your life.

The screening program is the American Academy of Dermatology’s longest-standing public health program. Since its inception in 1985, dermatologists have conducted more than 2.7 million free skin cancer screenings with more than 271,000 suspicious lesions detected, and more than 30,000 suspected melanomas.
