Free Skin Cancer Screenings

Sun-safe behavior and early detection are key steps to preventing skin cancer, including melanoma, the deadliest form of the disease. To help Utah residents find skin cancers early, Huntsman Cancer Institute holds a free skin cancer screening clinic each year. The screening is a free full-body skin exam for people age 18 and over. If needed, a referral to a dermatologst will be provided following the exam.

A skin cancer screening is recommended for high risk groups such as the following:

  • People who work or play outdoors—construction workers, mail carriers, lifeguards, golfers, skiers, hikers, cyclists to name a few
  • Tanning bed users
  • Men in their fifties or sixties
  • Fair-skinned people who freckle or burn easily
  • People with skin "spots" that have recently appeared, grown, or changed
