Did you know that skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer?  According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), nearly 2,000 cases of melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer, will be diagnosed in Georgia this year.  As with many other cancers, early detection is key.  The Northside Hospital Cancer Institute would like to help you get ready for the sun with a free skin cancer screening.
