NEW YORK, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning Melanoma Monday, May 2, and continuing throughout the year, thousands of dermatologists across the country will be offering free skin cancer screenings in local communities to teach people how to conduct skin self-examinations
and learn if they are at risk for the most common form of cancer -- skin cancer.
We encourage everyone to follow their lead by practicing sun-safe behaviors and conducting skin self-examinations
Sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD), Melanoma Monday "Prevention in the Park" kicks-off the 20th anniversary of the AAD Melanoma/Skin Cancer Screening Program, a national initiative in which nearly 2,000 dermatologists across the country provide free skin cancer screenings in local communities and teach people how to conduct skin self-examinations

Melanoma Monday serves as a way to encourage everyone to practice sun-safe behaviors and conduct regular skin self-examinations
Now in its ninth year, Melanoma Monday has been designated by the AAD as "National Skin Self-Examination
Day" in order to raise awareness about melanoma and encourage Americans to begin a lifelong habit of regular skin self-examinations
Melanoma Monday, now in its ninth year, has been designated by the AAD as "National Skin Self-Examination
Day" in order to raise awareness about melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer, and encourage Americans to begin a lifelong habit of regular skin self-examinations
We hope to promote skin self-examinations
and getting people into the doctor early because that can be the difference between life and death for melanoma," said Susan Swetter, MD, Director of the Pigmented Lesion and Melanoma Program at Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Professor of Dermatology.
For example, patients with CLL have to get serious about daily sun protection, and they need to learn how to do regular skin self-examinations
Running through July, Choose Skin Health from NEUTROGENA(R) encourages Americans to regularly perform skin self-examinations
, seek a free skin cancer screening from a dermatologist and protect themselves from the sun.
