Tenet Health Central Coast is offering a free skin cancer screening on Friday at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center in San Luis Obispo.

During a skin cancer screening event last year, medical professionals at Sierra Vista screened more than 100 people; 60% were referred to a dermatologist for further assessment, and more than 30% were referred to get a biopsy. With skin cancer being one of the most commonly diagnosed forms of cancer, it’s also one of the most treatable forms if it’s detected early on.

People ages 25-34 are considered high-risk. The event will run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center. Any adult can attend and be screened, but spots are filling up quickly. Call 805-546-7606 to register.
