Seeing Spots

Skin Cancer Seminar

Tuesday, May 20 from 6 to 8 p.m.
Swedish Medical Center, Conference Center

Spots… You find them on ladybugs, leopards and polka-dot dresses and sometimes they even end up on the carpet. But spots do not belong on your skin.

Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States It occurs when there are mutations in the DNA of the skin cells. This form of cancer begins in your skin’s top layer, the epidermis. This is a thin layer that provides a protective cover of skin cells continually shed by your body. The epidermis contains three main types of cells: squamous, basal and melanocytes.

Often times, unusual spots or changes in moles are early indicators that a problem could exist. You’re invited to learn more as Swedish physician Dr. Samantha Stoler speaks about the importance of annual skin checks and the first steps in preventing sun damage and skin cancer. Join us for this free event and learn more about your skin.
