Skin Cancer Screenings

The Most Common and Most Treatable Cancer


The sunshiny days draw folks outdoors and into the rays. Sunblock and UV-deflecting clothing will help keep skin damage to a minimum, but skin cancer is the most common kind of cancer—and the most preventable. Young folks are just as susceptible as older people, so it’s good to get those freckles, moles, and suspicious-looking spots checked annually by a dermatologist. To learn more about the myths and facts of skin cancer, and for skin cancer screening dates, call the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara (300 W. Pueblo St.) at 682-7300 or visit ccsb.org.
