Specialist on Hand to Answer Questions About Skin Cancer

STONY BROOK, N.Y., April 24, 2006 – Physicians from Stony Brook University Hospital’s Departments of Dermatology and Surgery are teaming up during Melanoma Awareness Month to provide free melanoma screenings and lectures about this most deadly form of skin cancer. The event will be held on Sunday, May 7, at the Ward Melville High School gymnasium in East Setauket.

Surgical oncologists will speak about preventing, detecting and treating melanoma during four scheduled 15-minute lectures. Following each lecture will be 45 minute skin cancer screening sessions provided by Stony Brook dermatologists. The lectures are scheduled at 11:15 AM, 12:15 PM, 1:15 PM, and 2:15 PM. The screenings are scheduled at 11:30 AM, 12:30 PM, 1:30 PM, and 2:30 PM. Walk-ins are welcome.

The event is sponsored by the American Academy of Dermatology’s National Coalition for Sun Safety. The day begins at 11:00 AM, with a light breakfast of juice, bagels and muffins. Attendees will receive free sunscreen, and patient education material on sun protection and skin cancer detection. An "Ask the Doctor" booth will be manned by a surgical oncologist while the screenings are taking place. The physician will answer general questions about skin cancer and specific ones regarding melanoma. The day ends after the final screening session is completed.

According to the American Cancer Society, approximately 60,000 Americans will be diagnosed with melanoma this year. One in seven of those diagnosed with melanoma will die of the disease.
