Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Skin Check skin cancer screening series has been paused temporarily. We hope to resume Skin Check screenings next year. Until then, be sure to follow the recommendations on this page to keep yourself and your family safe when spending time in the sun. Talk to your provider about getting your annual skin cancer screening.
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. There are three common types of skin cancer. Their names come from the type of skin cell in which they begin: basal cell carcinoma; squamous cell carcinoma; and melanoma, the most serious common form of skin cancer. Most of these cancers can be prevented by changing behaviors, and most can be cured if diagnosed and treated early.
