WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- With summer right around the corner, White Plains Hospital is helping Westchester residents combat skin cancer thanks to free screenings for adults and children on Wednesday, May 3 at the hospital’s Center for Cancer Care.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States, with an estimated one in five Americans developing the disease yearly. Malignant melanoma, which is the most dangerous form of skin cancer, can be deadly.

As with most diseases, early detection is vital to treating skin cancer. At White Plains Hospital's free screenings, board certified dermatology specialists will perform upper body exams on exposed areas of the skin such as the face, neck, arms and hands. “My colleagues and I are pleased to be able to provide this community service and to help raise awareness that anyone can get skin cancer regardless of race and skin tone," said Dr. Stuart Zweibel of White Plains Hospital Physician Associates Dermatology and Mohs Surgery. "While it is more common among people who are light or fair, skin cancer can affect adult men, women, teenagers and even younger children. The good news is that many skin cancers, including melanoma, respond well to treatment when caught early.”

With summer coming soon, doctors and staff will also educate patients on the importance of wearing proper sun screen and how to perform regular skin self-exams.

The skin cancer screening will be held on Wednesday, May 3 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the White Plains Hospital Center for Cancer Care, at 2 Longview Avenue in White Plains. No appointment is necessary and no insurance information is required.
