Skin cancer screening

If you like having fun in the sun or have noticed some concerning spots on your skin, it may be time to get screened for skin cancer.

Next week, Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute is hosting a free skin cancer screening event for community members and colleagues – find out more below:

Skin cancer and screenings

Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, with more than a million new cases expected to be diagnosed this year alone.

While these numbers may be concerning, there’s good news. When detected early, many cases of skin cancer aren’t just treatable – they also can be cured.

That’s where skin cancer screenings come in. During these visual exams, doctors look for suspicious moles and freckles, discolored or bleeding patches, and other marks that may indicate cancer (including those that fit the ABCDEs of skin cancer).

While people with fair skin, freckles, light eyes and/or a history of blistering sunburns are at increased risk for skin cancer, anyone can be diagnosed with it and should consider getting screened by an expert.

Upcoming skin cancer screening event - all appointments are filled at this time.

After a two-year hiatus, Lehigh Valley Topper Cancer Institute is excited to host this screening event:

6- 8 p.m.

John and Dorothy Morgan Cancer Center Infusion Center, Lehigh Valley Hospital (LVH)–Cedar Crest

The screenings take about 15 minutes and are completely painless. If something is found during a screening that looks suspicious, the doctor will recommend a formal dermatology appointment for further evaluation.

Appointments are required in advance of the event. To schedule one, please call 888-402-LVHN (5846) or visit

COVID-19 Precautions

We strongly encourage all attendees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within two weeks of this visit, or are experiencing symptoms, please stay home. Masks are required.
