The Dermatology Center of Indiana will be holding a free skin cancer screening on from 1:30-5 p.m., Friday, May 12 and from 7 a.m. to noon, Saturday, May 13 at the Zionsville location, 6639 Whitestown Parkway, Zionsville.
According to a press release from The Dermatology Center, skin cancer is defined by the American Academy of Dermatology as “an abnormal growth of skin cells. It most often develops on areas of the skin exposed to the sun’s rays. Skin Cancer affects people of all colors and races, although those with light skin who sunburn easily have a higher risk.” There are several types of skin cancer , with the most common being Basal Cell Carcinoma, or BCC, which can develop after years of frequent sun exposure or the use of indoor tanning systems. With all types of skin cancer, early diagnosis and treatment is important in order to prevent it from spreading to different areas of the body.
The Dermatology Center of Indiana was founded in 2002 by Dr. Scott Guenthner and today serves 80,000 active patients throughout Central Indiana out of its Plainfield and Zionsville offices. Dr. Guenthner and his staff of expert Physicians Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, and administrators offer treatments for all medical diseases of the skin, hair, and nails, in addition to cosmetic procedures and hair restoration.
