Biloxi Dermatology offering free skin cancer screening

May is Melanoma/Skin Cancer Detection and Prevention Month and Dr. John Phillips and Biloxi Dermatology Solutions have joined the fight against skin cancer by offering a free and potentially life-saving skin cancer screening from 9 a.m. to noon for any adult who has not had their skin screened in the past 12 months.

Biloxi Dermatology Solutions is staffed and operated by Southeastern Dermatology Group and Dermatology Solutions Group, which has more than 20 medical practices in Mississippi, Florida, Alabama and Georgia.

While a regular skin exam by a dermatologist is the best option, people are advised to perform a self-exam and look for moles that are asymmetrical, have an irregular border, are larger than a pencil eraser or are evolving, multiple colors and bleeding or itching.

To schedule a screening call 207-5140.
