PRESTONSBURG – Skin cancer is the most common cancer affecting Americans. In fact, about 20 percent of us will develop it at some point in our lives. Because skin cancer usually results from lifestyle choices, nearly all cases are avoidable.
Those choices may have been made five, 10 or even 20 years ago, so it’s important to protect your skin from the sun and UV rays now, avoid unnecessary exposure to UV radiation and have regular skin cancer screenings.
Family physician Roger Jurich, M.D., is offering a free skin cancer screening beginning at 8 a.m. Friday, July 26 at King’s Daughters Medical Specialties, 1279 Old Abbott Mountain Road, Prestonsburg.
The screening is free, but appointments are required. For more information or to schedule, please call 1-888-377-KDMC.
