According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime, and one person dies from melanoma – the deadliest form of skin cancer – every hour. Yet when caught early, skin cancer is highly treatable. Detecting skin cancer only takes a few minutes and a skin cancer screening by a dermatologist could save your life. May is Melanoma Awareness Month. Keep an eye out for our FREE SPOTme™ Skin Checks events and 15% off all in-stock SPF products!

We’re also here year-round if you notice something unusual going on with your skin. Our skin cancer patient guide provides more information about what to expect with screenings, biopsies, and treatment. You can also learn more about the different types of skin cancer and what to look for during self-exams.

Skin cancer rates have been going up everywhere, but even more so in St. Louis and the surrounding areas where rates are higher than the national average. Despite the available information about the increased risk of sun exposure, many of us are lazy about sunscreen application when we’re young. With a family history of skin cancer and hereditary factors, it can be important to start getting regular skin checks by the time you turn 40.

During Melanoma Awareness Month, West County Dermatology is offering FREE SPOTme™ Skin Checks and all in-stock SPF is 15% off!
