Melanoma is the most serious of all skin cancers, but it can be treated successfully if detected early. In support of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, the Cancer Center of Santa Barbara will offer free skin cancer screenings on a first-come, first-serve basis. Dermatologists will be on hand to check for unusual moles or irregular blemishes that could signify the onset of melanoma or the more common types of skin cancer, including basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma.

Individuals at a higher risk for developing melanoma are those who have fair skin and a history of excessive exposure to the sun, have many moles, and/or have a first-degree relative who has been diagnosed with melanoma.
