Northside Hospital offers free skin cancer screening in Atlanta

Did you know that skin cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer?


According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), more than 2,000 cases of melanoma, the most dangerous type of skin cancer, will be diagnosed in Georgia this year. As with other cancers, early detection is important. The Northside Hospital Cancer Institute would like to help you get ready for the sun with a skin cancer screening. Medical professionals will provide skin assessments in a private setting. Registration is now open and everyone is invited to attend.

Northside Hospital is one of the largest and most respected providers of comprehensive cancer services in the Southeast, combining the latest in technology and research with compassionate patient-centered care. The hospital offers a full continuum of care that encompasses the entire cancer experience, including education, screening, diagnosis, treatment, research, support and survivorship.


Northside’s skin cancer screening should not replace a complete skin exam with a skin specialist. Additional skin cancer screenings will be offered later in the year in Alpharetta and Cumming.
