SALT LAKE CITY — Sun-safe behavior and early detection are key steps to preventing skin cancer, including melanoma, the deadliest form of the disease.
With its high altitude and inviting outdoor environment, Utah has a high prevalence of skin cancer, and residents are encouraged to be vigilant in preventing and detecting it. People who work or play outdoors, use tanning beds, are fair-skinned or who freckle or sunburn easily, as well as men in their 50s and 60s, are at a particularly high risk for developing skin cancer.
To help Utah residents find skin cancer early, the Huntsman Cancer Institute is holding a free skin cancer clinic from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. For an appointment, call the Huntsman Cancer Learning Center at 888-424-2100.
