Lutheran General Hospital to host free Skin Cancer Screening – Saturday, October 5

Advocate Lutheran General Hospital is hosting a free skin cancer screening from 9 a.m. – Noon on Saturday, October 5, 2013. The visual screenings will take place on the first floor of the hospital’s Center for Advanced Care, located at 1700 Luther Way, Park Ridge, Ill.

Lutheran General Physicians, Sigrun Hallmeyer, M.D., Jon Richards, M.D., Shadi Latta, M.D. Neil Dalal, M.D. and Andrew Meyer, M.D. will perform the free screenings, and they will give participants their results immediately. The physicians will also recommend follow-up care, if necessary.

Like many cancers, skin cancers start as precancerous lesions. These precancerous lesions are changes in skin that are not cancer but could become cancer over time. Screenings, such as the one at Lutheran General Hospital can help identify cancer at earlier, more treatable, stages.

The screening is free and open to the public, but registration is required. The visual screening is not intended to replace a thorough skin examination conducted by a primary physician. The purpose of this screening is early detection and prevention of skin cancer.

To register, please call Advocate’s Health Advisor at 1.800.3.ADVOCATE (1.800.323.8622) and mention event code “8C03” or visit click on “I need a class or support group” and type the class code (8C03) in the keyword box. Participants may park for free, in the parking garage adjacent to the Center for Advanced Care.
