Screening for Skin Cancer

Have you been burned?

According to the American Cancer Society, Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, with more diagnoses each year than all other cancers combined. But, when found early, skin cancer is almost always treatable.

UVA Health System’s Dermatology Clinic offers a free skin cancer screening event every spring where patients of all ages are screened for potential skin cancer concerns. Community members who attend receive tools to help prevent skin cancer, information sheets, sunscreen, sun hats and UV-detecting bracelets. Additionally, patients are offered further evaluation when needed. 

UVA's Skin Cancer Screening looks for such cancers as:

  • Actinic keratosis
  • Basal Cell Carcinoma
  • Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  • Atypical Nevus
  • Melanoma

Registration for the 2017 Skin Cancer Screening will open in March 2017
