Free Skin Cancer Screenings Offered

Meridian, Miss.
Anderson Regional Cancer Center is offering free skin cancer screenings Thursday, May 29, from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.

Dr. Neill C. Porter, board certified dermatologist, and board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Mark S. Elliott and Dr. Lee K. Thornton, will conduct the screenings.

Anderson officials say skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer in the United States. It most often develops on skin exposed to the sun but can also occur on areas of your skin not ordinarily exposed to sunlight.

Early detection of skin cancer gives you the greatest chance for successful skin cancer treatment.

The free skin cancer screening at Anderson Regional Cancer Center is by appointment only and limited appointments are available. No walk-ins will be accepted.

Anderson Regional Cancer Center is located at 1704 23rd Avenue. To secure your skin cancer screening appointment, please call 601-485-5081.
