Community Skin Cancer Screening Events

Northside hosts multiple skin cancer screening events for community members (adults 18 years of age and older) each year. Screenings take place in a private setting and consist of a brief skin assessment by a medical professional. Typically, only skin exposed areas such as arms, hands, neck and feet are examined.

Skin cancer screenings are not intended to take the place of annual comprehensive skin examinations. For a more in-depth examination, please schedule an appointment with your dermatologist.
