Local dermatologists teaming up for free skin cancer screenings today

GREENVILLE, NC (WITN) - A team of 11 local dermatologists and the Polka Dot Mama Melanoma Foundation will be holding free skin cancer screenings today from 9 a.m. to noon.

The screenings will be held at Eastern Dermatology and Pathology in Greenville and will be held on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Unlike other cancers, a dermatologist can detect skin cancer during a visual of the skin. A skin cancer screening only takes a few minutes and it could save your life.
