Summer is here, but let’s not forget the risks of skin cancer, especially melanoma – one of the deadliest forms of skin cancer.
In 2022, over 89,000 people were diagnosed with melanoma and skin cancer, and it’s one of the few cancers with rising incidence rates.
To address this, Melanoma Canada launched the Mole Mobile, the first mobile skin cancer screening unit in Canada. It aims to conduct 25,000 free skin cancer screenings each summer for the next five years across major cities, underserved communities,
and rural areas, and Indigenous regions in Canada.
Aboard the Mole Mobile, a certified Canadian dermatologist will conduct a free skin check to help detect potential skin cancers. Additionally, patients will receive a mole tracker card that educates them on how to detect melanoma by using the ABCDE’s (Asymmetry, Border, Colour, Diameter, Evolution) guidelines to check their skin monthly.
Take control of your skin health today. Book your free skin check on the Mole Mobile, sign up for email updates to notify you when locations are added, and consider donating to help ensure that the Mole Mobile can continue to provide free screenings and education to communities across Canada.
